What are the risks?

Although all investments carry risk, the level of risk is dependent on the type of investment strategy and the underlying investments. Generally, the higher the potential return of an investment, the greater the risk.

The risks of investing in Realindex strategies include:

Company risk

Investment in equities is exposed to risks due to changes in that company or its business environment.

Market risk

Investment returns are influenced by the performance of the markets as a whole.

Currency risk

For investments in international assets, which have currency exposure, there is potential for adverse movements in exchange rates to reduce their Australian dollar value.

As with any investment, there are no guarantees on the value of the investment or the income generated from it. Investors may get back less than the original amount invested. For a full description of the terms of investment and the risks, please see the Product Disclosure Statement for each fund.

Realindex strategies

Diversified Alpha Strategy

Diversified Alpha is a core systematic strategy designed to deliver consistent, risk-adjusted returns above the benchmark, with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations embedded into the process. 

How we invest in equities

Realindex Investments builds data sets, research and production systems to understand and exploit inefficiencies across a range of factors: value, quality, momentum, growth and ESG, in emerging and developed markets.

Responsible investment

Our corporate responsible investment strategy is based upon three strategic pillars of quality, stewardship and engagement.

ESG research has been and continues to be a strategic initiative for Realindex.  As a manager of systematic investment strategies, the degree to which ESG considerations are incorporated varies across strategies but in all cases investment stewardship considerations are paramount. We have undertaken a significant amount of research on systematically integrating ESG considerations into portfolios using our extensive database of ESG data and metrics licensed from third parties. This research has been used to refine our investment process and develop customised client solutions.
