Data powered by FE fundinfo. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The inception date of the Fund is 16 August 2004.

FE fundinfo calculates performance using the Australian FSC Standard by constructing a total value index series that reflects the percentage change in investments assuming the reinvestment of all distributions. A total value index series is constructed using the Ex-Distribution exit price, which is calculated at the end of a distribution period by deducting the distribution amount by the Cum distribution exit price.

Data powered by FE fundinfo

Performance is calculated on a bid-to-bid basis with income reinvested. It is important to know that unit prices reflect the value of the underlying assets of the funds and so can go down as well as up.

Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Where a fund invests in overseas securities, the unit prices may also rise and fall purely on account of exchange rate fluctuations.
