QSuper's investment strategy is based on a set of investment principles that are at the core of the investment process. They have been formed over time through a combination of investment theory, empirical evidence, and practice and experience. QSuper continually reviews our investment principles to ensure we harness the best strategies for returns.
We recognise risk in multiple ways:
Risks need to be traded off in the endeavour to meet members objectives.
This is based on a mix of investment theory and empirical evidence.
In periods of low or negative hedging returns and stretched asset valuations, developed market (DM) FX exposure may give some cost-effective downside protection or improve risk-adjusted returns versus a fully-hedged portfolio.
In some markets, currencies may exhibit risk premiums/return potential, and have different correlation and transaction cost considerations that warrant leaving exposure unhedged on a case-by-case basis.
