The Fund aims to provide capital preservation and protection against inflation, whilst allowing for capital appreciation of investments and seek to optimise its overall investment returns at acceptable risk levels through adequate risk diversification.
To protect returns in SGD terms, the foreign currency exposure of the Fund will be significantly hedged.
Financial derivative instruments, such as spots, forwards, non-deliverable forwards, swaps, futures and/or options, may be used for the purposes of hedging and/or efficient portfolio management, subject to requirements of the Code on Collective Investment Schemes.
