What are the risks

The performance of the interest held for you in Lonsec Retirement Managed Portfolios will depend on the performance of the managed portfolio chosen, and the performance of the assets in the managed portfolio. The managed portfolios offered are subject to risk, including possible delays in repayment and loss of income and capital. No member of the AMP group or the investment manager(s) guarantee the repayment of capital, payment of income or the performance of the managed portfolios chosen. All investments carry a risk component. Risk in an investment context refers to the possibility that the investment will not return its original capital or expected income and that the level of return will be volatile over any given time period. This risk can include market risk, company risk, currency risk, interest rate and inflation risk.

About Lonsec Investment Solutions

Lonsec Investment Solutions is a specialist model portfolio manager with extensive expertise in portfolio construction, asset allocation and investment selection, with their best ideas encapsulated in a series of managed portfolios to meet different client needs

Drawing on Lonsec’s in-depth investment product research, their portfolios invest in managed funds that are rated Recommended and higher.

Lonsec’s investment philosophy underpins their investment research driven approach to portfolio construction and the processes we use to build quality investment solutions. At the core of their philosophy are four beliefs:

  • A dynamic approach to portfolio management to achieve investment objectives while managing downside risk.
  • Investing in high quality investments underpinned by Lonsec’s extensive research.
  • A strong risk management culture supported by a rigorous governance process.
  • A diversified approach to portfolio construction.

The Lonsec Retirement Managed Portfolios have been uniquely constructed so that they manage risks that are specifically relevant to investors in the retirement phase. They aim to mitigate risks such as capital drawdown risk, which can materially impact the longevity of a retirement portfolio, particularly in the early stages of transitioning from superannuation to the pension phase of investing.

The portfolios have been constructed based on three key building blocks, the:

  • Yield component includes investments ranging from equities through to cash. These investments have a focus on generating yield, or a certain level of income.
  • Capital growth component is designed to generate long-term capital growth, with limited focus on income.
  • Risk control component is designed to reduce some of the risks associated with being exposed to the market through the yield and capital growth components, as well as managing other risks such as inflation risk.
