How the fund range aims to deliver on its objectives
1. Setting the strategic asset allocation
The asset allocation is managed to maintain each fund’s risk level within Dynamic Planner’s target risk profiles. The target risk profiles reflect Dynamic Planner’s view of long-term expected returns and volatility for each asset class. Their approach is dynamic with reviews at least quarterly. The reviews combine quantitative analysis with qualitative views from their investment committee.
2. Selecting appropriate investments
We continuously review the investment options available to ensure that the asset allocation is met in an efficient and cost-effective way. The VIRO funds are invested in Vanguard index-tracking funds which provide diversification and liquidity at a low cost.
3. Dynamic rebalancing
The asset allocation is monitored daily and rebalanced within a narrow tolerance band to ensure that the fund’s risk level remains strictly within its target risk profile.
