This option looks to minimise asset price fluctuation so invests in short-term cash assets. These have very little short-term real growth and may experience negative returns when interest rates are low.
Please refer to the QSuper Product Disclosure Statement for Income Account and Lifetime Pension (pdf) for detailed information.
Please note: Percentages are subject to rounding. Asset class percentages may not add up to 100% because they include the effective exposure of derivatives in the investment option.
Some investment items may appear as negative because of collateral management arrangements or overdraft facilities, or because they are in a loss position as at the reporting date.
Cash includes physical cash, along with cash held to back derivative positions. For this reason, the figures posted here may exceed those in our asset allocation ranges.
