CINSF Conservative Fund Benchmark


Outperformance will be sought where appropriate (i.e. where management is active as opposed to passive) relative to the notional return on a benchmark portfolio designed to reflect the risk profile according to which the assets are invested at the time.

The outperformance objective is Total Fund Return (i.e. the total CINSF Investment Fund return net of investment manager fees) to exceed the Benchmark Return by 0.3% p.a. over rolling 3-year periods.

The Benchmark Return is the return that would have been achieved had the CINSF Investment Fund been invested at its benchmark asset allocation and earned the Index returns of each asset class.
