Benefits and risks

Investment in the Solaris Core Australian Equity Fund offers investors a range of benefits:

  • Management expertise:  The investment and management expertise of Solaris, a boutique Australian owned equities fund manager providing access to investment opportunities and markets that individual investors usually cannot achieve on their own.
  • Investment approach: Solaris selects a diversified portfolio of securities using fundamental analysis to exploit market inefficiencies in forecasts and valuations. Solaris’ investment approach involves a detailed analysis of the securities and key financial markets, with an eye on global perspectives.
  • Diversification: The Fund’s investments will be spread across a carefully researched and actively managed portfolio of up to 70 different company stocks. This diversification of investments can help reduce overall investment risk.
  • Investment opportunities: Access to wholesale investment opportunities that may not generally be available to private investors.
  • Resources: Access to full-time research resources, a rigorous investment process, highly developed risk management expertise, and advanced trading systems and technology.
    • Risks: All investments carry risk. Different strategies can carry different levels of risk, depending on the assets that make up that strategy. Assets with the highest long-term returns may also carry the highest level of risk. The value of investments and the level of returns will vary.
    • Equity security risk: The share price of a security can rise and fall as a consequence of many factors including, but not limited to, economic conditions, adverse investor sentiment, management performance, financial leverage, or factors that affect the company’s industry.
    • Concentration risk: The risk associated with a fund that concentrates its investments in a small number of securities or invests in a small subset of an asset class, resulting in possibly higher volatility compared to the broader market index.
    • Investment strategy risk: The success of the Fund depends upon the investment manager’s ability to develop and implement investment processes and identify investment opportunities that achieve the investment objectives of the Fund.

Future returns may differ from past returns and past performance is not a reliable guide to future performance. For further discussion of risks please refer to the Product Disclosure Statement.
