Hostplus introduces three new investment options

Hostplus has introduced three new sector specific investment options for members and self-managed superannuation fund investors.

The superannuation fund said the three new options would provide members and investors with more diversity and less asset and manager concentration risk.

The Diversified Fixed Interest – Indexed option would invest in Australian and international government bonds and other investment grade debt.

“It’s designed for members looking to minimise fees. It uses an indexed-enhanced strategy based on an established market index and then seeks to add modest value by exploiting market inefficiencies. This option aims to provide capital stability and a return above cash over a market cycle,” Hostplus said.

The second option, the Australian Shares – Indexed option, would invest in companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

“It’s designed for members looking to minimise fees. It uses an indexed-enhanced strategy based upon an established market index and then seeks to add modest value by exploiting market inefficiencies.”

This option would aim to achieve capital growth and income growth via dividends over the long term.

Finally, the International Shares – Emerging Markets option would invest in companies listed on international stock exchanges within emerging market countries.

The International Shares – Emerging Markets option would be actively managed and would aim to outperform the market by selecting which companies to buy and sell, achieving capital growth and income growth via dividends over the long term.

Hostplus was expected to merge with Statewide Super on 29 April, providing more investment options to Statewide members.
