Fund Performance

The Fund commenced in March 2015 and its performance is benchmarked against the S&P/ASX200 A-REIT Accumulation Index

As at 31 December 2016. Fund Performance is presented after fees and costs. Past performance is not an indicator of future performance.

The Fund invests in ASX-listed property securities and property-like investments.

Investment Strategy


The Fund will invest primarily in large, well-established Australian property securities listed on the ASX, which hold underlying investments including office, retail, industrial and hotel assets. To broaden the universe of investment opportunities, the Fund may also invest in a selected range of other assets, including listed property related securities such as infrastructure, property developers, property fund managers, international listed property securities, cash and fixed interest. 

Individual stock positions can deviate from the Benchmark by plus or minus 5% for index stocks. Non-index stocks, which have an index weight of zero, can each represent up to a maximum of 5% of the Fund.



Award Winning Investment Management

Cromwell has appointed boutique equity investment manager Phoenix Portfolios Pty Ltd (“Phoenix”) to manage the Fund’s investments. Phoenix have significant expertise in the assessment and selection of listed property and property related securities and this Fund is the only way retail investors can gain exposure to their stock selection abilities.

Diversified Property Portfolio

The Fund provides exposure to a broad range of ASX-listed property and property-related securities. The Fund’s benchmark is the S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Accumulation Index (“the Benchmark”), but importantly it also has the ability to invest in high-value property related stocks outside the Benchmark index, providing genuine portfolio diversification.

Experienced Investment Manager


Phoenix is a value manager, meaning it looks to exploit market conditions by identifying securities whose fundamental attributes are inconsistent with their current prices - buying securities that represent good value and selling once they become overpriced. Phoenix utilises detailed, yet standardised, financial models allowing a large universe of securities to be reviewed in order to determine the most attractive investment opportunities and create a diversified portfolio.


Risk Disclosure


All investments carry risk. You should consider the Fund’s risks in light of your personal circumstances and your attitude towards risks.

The key risks of investing in the Fund are typical of the risks associated with managed investment schemes that invest in shares of Australian listed companies. It is important that you know that the value of your investment will go up and down over time, the Fund’s returns will vary over time, future returns may differ from past returns, and returns are not guaranteed. All of this means that there is always the chance that you could lose money on your investment.

As set out in Section 4 of the product disclosure statement dated 10 March 2015 (“PDS”), the significant risks for the Fund are security specific risk, market risk, legal and regulatory risk, manager risk, derivative risk, and liquidity risk.

You should read the important risk information in Section 4 of the PDS before making a decision. The material may change between the time when you read the PDS and the day that you acquire the product.

Risk level

CFM believes that the Fund’s risk level is medium. The risk of your investment falling in value over the short term is high when compared to investments in managed investment schemes that invest in asset classes such as cash or fixed interest securities. However, the Fund offers potentially more favourable returns over the medium to long term than cash or fixed interest securities. This is why the minimum suggested timeframe for an investment in the Fund is at least three to five years.
