Investing for retirementAt StatePlus we understand the financial needs of pre-retirees and retirees, which means that we manage money differently. Our experience tells us that retirees have a greater need for certainty and security. As stewards of our clients’ retirement savings we invest in a way that’s highly aligned to these needs.
At StatePlus we use two alternatives sectors in portfolios to try to improve the risk-adjusted returns, and each is suited to its specific purpose. The Growth Asset Diversifiers sector tries to improve returns by providing diversification during periods when overall portfolio performance is likely to be weak. By contrast, the Absolute Returns sector tries to add returns steadily over time.
At StatePlus we’re always looking for better ways to invest your money. This is why we’re now investing in unlisted infrastructure. Stability, diversification and consistent valuations are just some of the benefits of this asset class.
