Our approach

The AIMS Target Return Fund is a multi-strategy portfolio that targets an annual return of cash plus five per cent per annum above the Central Bank base rate over a rolling three-year period (gross of fees), with less than half the volatility of global equities.

It seeks to deliver returns that are uncorrelated to other asset classes, acting as a diversifier within investors’ broader portfolios and providing some protection against the impact of equity market volatility.

Potential benefits

Multi-strategy investing that harnesses economic analysis, investment insight and robust portfolio construction.

Targeted outcome

Investments selected with an emphasis on absolute risk-adjusted returns as opposed to benchmark-relative returns.

Low volatility

Aims for volatility that is less than half that of global equities over any three-year period.


Offers a source of diversified returns in a balanced portfolio.

Key risks

For further information on the risks and risk profiles of our funds, please refer to the relevant fund documents.

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Derivatives risk

The fund uses derivatives; these can be complex and highly volatile. Derivatives may not perform as expected, which means the fund may suffer significant losses.

Illiquid securities risk

Certain assets held in the fund could, by nature, be hard to value or to sell at a desired time or at a price considered to be fair (especially in large quantities), and as a result their prices could be very volatile.

Important information

The OECD Common Reporting Standard for Automatic Exchange of Financial Account Information (CRS) will require certain financial institutions to report information regarding certain accounts to their local tax authority and follow related due diligence procedures.  Both the Underlying Fund and the Australian feeder Fund (the 'Australian Fund') are expected to be 'Financial Institutions' under the CRS and the Australian Fund intends to comply with its CRS obligations by obtaining and reporting information on relevant accounts, which will include unit holdings in the Australian Fund, to the Australian Tax Office (ATO). In order for the Underlying Fund and the Fund to comply with their respective obligations, we will request that you provide certain information and certifications to us necessary for compliance with the CRS. We will determine whether either or both of the Underlying Fund and the Australian Fund are required to report your details to the ATO or other taxation authorities based on our assessment of the relevant information received. Information provided to the ATO may be provided to other jurisdictions that have signed the “CRS Competent Authority Agreement”, the multilateral framework agreement that provides the mechanism to facilitate the automatic exchange of information in accordance with the CRS.  The Australian Government has enacted legislation amending, among other things, the Taxation Administration Act 1953 of Australia to give effect to the CRS.  The CRS will apply to the Underlying Funds with effect from 1 July 2017.
