Created in 1991 by the Queensland government to serve its long-term investment responsibilities, QIC has grown into a leading long-term specialist manager in alternatives. QIC has investment capabilities relevant for today’s investment landscape, and their local and global networks give them access to quality alternative assets with a focus on infrastructure, real estate and private capital. They also specialise in liquid market solutions, providing multi-asset portfolios, liquid alternatives, active fixed interest and tailored overlays for their clients.
QIC’s heritage has given them the freedom to go beyond the conventional and focus on a range of meaningful solutions that deliver on investment outcomes for clients.
|Investment objective||The Fund aims to achieve an investment return of the Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index plus 3% (before fees and taxes) over rolling five-year periods from investments in cash, fixed interest, property, shares and alternative assets over the medium term, through investment in the Underlying Fund.|
|Investment strategy||The Underlying Fund allocates across growth assets (shares, property and alternative assets including listed infrastructure) and defensive assets (fixed interest and cash). For risk management purposes, it may hedge some or all of its currency exposure.
QIC seeks to add value by utilising an Equilibrium Asset Allocation (EAA) framework to build the Underlying Fund and guide positioning over the medium to long-term. EAA represents the unconstrained long-term target positioning of the Underlying Fund through a full investment cycle. QIC also utilises an Opportunistic Asset Allocation (OAA) approach to tilt asset allocations in response to changing valuations and general market conditions. OAA can reduce overall portfolio volatility whilst increasing returns in the selection of the investments held by the Underlying Fund.

Distributions are the profit earned by the Fund which is then paid to investors. Distributions are expressed as cents per unit, for example, if a distribution of 3 cents was paid and you hold 1000 units you will be paid a distribution of $30 (1000 x $0.03). Distributions can include different types of income including dividends, interest and realised capital gains. The amount and timing of distributions will vary from period to period. Investors should be aware that there may be periods in which no distribution is made.
The unit price of the Fund will fall by a corresponding amount when the distribution is paid.
