Description of Target Market


TMD indicator key

The Consumer Attributes for which the product is likely to be appropriate have been assessed using a red/amber/green rating methodology with appropriate colour coding:

In target market

Potentially in target market

Not considered in target market


Instructions

In the tables below, Column 1, Consumer Attributes, indicates a description of the likely objectives, financial situation and needs of the class of consumers that are considering this product. Column 2, TMD indicator, indicates whether a consumer meeting the attribute in column 1 is likely to be in the target market for this product.


Generally, a consumer is unlikely to be in the target market for the product if:

  • one or more of their Consumer Attributes correspond to a red rating, or
  • three or more of their Consumer Attributes correspond to an amber rating.

Investment products and diversification

A consumer (or class of consumer) may intend to hold a product as part of a diversified portfolio (typically with an intended product use of satellite/small allocation or core component) . In such circumstances, the product should be assessed against the consumer’s attributes for the relevant portion of the portfolio, rather than the consumer’s portfolio as a whole. For example, a consumer may seek to construct a conservative portfolio with a satellite/small allocation to growth assets. In this case, it may be likely that a product with a High or Very High risk/return profile is consistent with the consumer’s objectives for that allocation notwithstanding that the risk/return profile of the consumer as a whole is Low or Medium. In making this assessment, distributors should consider all features of a product (including its key attributes).

Consumer's investment objective
Capital Growth

The Fund's investment objective is to deliver consistent and smoother targeted distribution of income over time through the combination of the investment strategy generating returns from more liquid segments of the fixed income market and access to the Threshold Manager.
The Fund also seeks to deliver consistent targeted income of a maximum of 3.5% calculated on the Principal per annum or an equivalent of approximately 0.008% per day (net of fees and expenses), with its commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.
Any income distributions (if available) will be made on the last day of each financial year and will be reinvested in full unless an investor elects to receive cash distributions. Withdrawals can be made daily on any business day with a minimum of $0.01.

Risk and Return
Issuers should undertake a comprehensive risk assessment for each product. The FSC strongly recommends adoption of the Standard Risk Measure (SRM) to calculate the likely number of negative annual returns over a 20 year period, using the guidance and methodology outlined in the Standard Risk Measure Guidance Paper For Trustees. SRM is not a complete assessment of risk. For example, it does not detail important issues such as the potential size of a negative return or that a positive return could still be less than a consumer requires to meet their investment objectives/needs. Issuers may wish to supplement the SRM methodology by also considering other risk factors. For example, some products may use leverage, derivatives or short selling, may have liquidity or withdrawal limitations, or otherwise may have a complex structure or increased investment risks, which should be documented together with the SRM to substantiate the product risk rating.
Very high risk & return Consumer has a more aggressive or very high risk appetite, wishing to maximise returns and willing to accept higher potential losses (e.g. 6 or more negative returns over a 20 year period or SRM 7) and possibly other risk factors, such as leverage, that could increase returns, plus also the size and magnitude of losses.
Consumer will typically prefer growth assets such as shares, property and alternative assets
High risk & return Consumer will be higher risk in nature, wishing to accept higher potential losses (e.g. 4 to less than 6 negative returns over a 20 year period or SRM 6) in order to target a higher target return profile.

Consumer will typically prefer predominantly growth assets such as shares, property and alternative assets with only a smaller or moderate holding in defensive assets such as cash and fixed income.
Medium risk & return Consumer will be moderate or medium risk in nature, wishing to minimise potential losses (e.g. 1 to less than 4 negative returns over a 20 year period or SRM 3 to 5) and comfortable with a moderate target return profile.
Consumer will typically prefer a balance of growth assets such as shares, property and alternative assets and defensive assets such as cash and fixed income.
Low risk & return Consumer will be conservative or low risk in nature, wishing to minimise potential losses (e.g. less than 1 negative returns over a 20 year period or SRM 1 to 2) and comfortable with a low target return profile.
Consumer will typically prefer defensive assets such as cash and fixed income.
