this is not necessarily a reliable guide to future performance and volatility. For this reason. Zenith’s portfolio objectives are relative in nature. Zenith utilises a series of “median managers” that match the risk/return profile of each of the Zenith portfolios. In order to determine the performance of competitor products. the performance statistics of the relevant median manager are shown alongside the performance of the portfolio in the model portfolio report. please refer to Section 9 of this document. Objectives of the Portfolios Setting total return objectives for portfolios is a difficult task. as the return is dependent on the performance of each of the underlying asset classes and fund returns. This approach ensures that there is an appropriate portfolio available for all clients. The five model portfolios offered by Zenith are as follows: Conservative Moderate Balanced Growth High Growth 5 . For further detail on median manager calculations. with the aim to outperform competitor products of a similar risk/return profile over the medium to longer term. 3.2. The main consideration in determining the split between growth and defensive assets across the portfolio suite was to ensure that there was a meaningful and consistent step-up in risk and return. Whilst it is useful to assess the historical risk and return characteristics of each of the asset classes. regardless of the risk appetite. To enable comparison. Determining the Risk / Return Profiles Zenith offers five risk / return profiles across its portfolio suite.

if an investor had invested in a typical Growth Portfolio for only a 1 year period (at any time over the past 20 years). For example. Zenith analyses models such as this for all risk profiles (i. Growth.e. expected negative returns and predictability of return outcomes.3. 4. where we leverage off Zenith’s extensive inhouse knowledge of the risk and return inherent in all mainstream asset classes.

Balanced etc). Therefore. their return outcome could have been anywhere between +33% and -26%. High Growth. there is also a significant qualitative component to the Strategic Asset Allocation process. clearly a 40% allocation to Managed Futures would be an excessive exposure for most investors. The graph clearly shows that the variability of returns is much higher over shorter-term periods. Investment Timeframe The investment timeframe for each portfolio is determined after careful consideration of expected volatility. 100% 10% 35% 40% 45% 50% 55% 80% 85% 90% 95% 15% 20% 25% 30% 60% 65% 70% 75% 8 .

Risk of Negative Return Conservative Portfolio Moderate Portfolio Balanced Portfolio Growth Portfolio High Growth Portfolio 1 in 36 Years 1 in 10 Years 1 in 6 Years 1 in 5 Years 1 in 5 Years Another useful input in setting the Investment Timeframe is the analysis of return funnel graphs. Far better predictability of returns was achieved by investing for periods of 5 years or longer. Based on the historical volatility of the model portfolios. Zenith has calculated the following Risk of Negative Return statistics for each of the five model portfolio types.

however. Regular rebalancing ensures that the portfolio does not stray too far from the desired asset allocation.Example Growth Portfolio 40% 30% 20% Return (% pa. Small companies funds are also used where applicable. High quality small companies funds are an attractive addition to portfolios as they can potentially enhance long-term returns. particularly for Balanced. which have historically provided solid capital growth and reasonable levels of dividend income.

The primary exposure to Australian shares is achieved using funds that focus on large capitalisation stocks. 4. 4. Growth and High Growth portfolios. 9 . but preferably more frequently. Asset Classes within the Strategic Asset Allocation The following includes a brief discussion on how each of the major asset classes are used in model portfolios. Zenith recommends that advisers rebalance their portfolios on an annual basis. The recommended investment time frames across each of the Zenith Model Portfolios are shown in the table below: Investment Timeframe Conservative Portfolio Moderate Portfolio Balanced Portfolio Growth Portfolio High Growth Portfolio 2 – 3 Years 3 – 4 Years 4 – 5 Years 5 – 7 Years 7+ Years 4.5. long/short funds will also be used from time to time.

Infrastructure securities tend to offer a higher yield and lower volatility than the broader international shares sector.5. Zenith tightly manages the fixed interest component of the portfolios to ensure that there is adequate diversification. corporate fixed interest securities). Whilst international shares offer a slightly lower dividend yield than Australian shares. Zenith released a paper in 2009 that provided our findings that a 50/50 allocation has historically achieved lower volatility than taking on a 100% unhedged or 100% hedged exposure. For this reason.4. Zenith includes two other sub-asset classes in its overall exposure to international shares. and therefore an exposure to infrastructure securities in model portfolios can be used to not only enhance diversification. In regards to the currency exposure of international shares funds.4. Global listed property offers higher growth potential with lower yields than what is generally available from Australian listed property funds.2. while an exposure to credit can be used to enhance the model portfolio’s income profile. 4. 10 . as we believe that high quality Alternatives funds can significantly enhance portfolio diversification.5. Zenith tends to have an equal allocation to Australian and international shares in its model portfolios. lower volatility and potentially enhance long-term returns. Whilst Australian property securities funds have long been available. Global infrastructure securities includes those listed companies that specialise in infrastructure projects. and global infrastructure securities. 4. In order to ensure that there are not too many funds used in portfolios.5. Zenith has tended to use a combination of long-only and long/short funds in its international shares portfolios. and can provide strong diversification to a portfolio when used appropriately. Zenith tends to mainly introduce global resources securities funds and global infrastructure securities funds in Growth and High Growth portfolios.3. It is critical to ensure that the portfolios are not overly exposed to any single factor risk.5. the relatively recent emergence of global listed property funds in the Australian market has provided further opportunity for diversification. Property Property exposure is achieved using listed property securities funds. international shares funds also form a core component of the Zenith model portfolios. international government bonds. specifically: Australian government bonds. but also to increase the overall income generation of the portfolio. Zenith typically allocates 50% of the property exposure of a portfolio to Australian listed property and 50% to global listed property. Government bonds typically provide stability and downside protection.e. International Shares As with Australian shares. Zenith aims to achieve an approximate 50/50 allocation between hedged and unhedged funds. Fixed Interest Fixed interest is used to provide the defensive (capital preservation) exposure of the model portfolios. 4.5. Property provides strong diversification benefits and can also enhance the model portfolio’s income profile. Global resources securities essentially encompasses resources & mining stocks listed on global stock exchanges. specifically: global resources securities. and credit (i. Zenith aims to achieve diversification across three distinct fixed interest segments. Zenith believes the total return available from high quality international shares funds should be comparable to Australian shares funds over the long term. Alternatives Zenith is a strong advocate of the use of Alternatives funds in model portfolios.

For example. and Longest Losing Streak.A primary consideration when selecting a fund for the portfolio is how the fund will blend with other funds in the portfolio. if a particular Highly Recommended fund does not offer the required exposure for the portfolio (eg. Highly Recommended funds will be used where possible. in those cases. the model portfolio returns are net of both fees. it is assumed that the portfolios are reweighted to their Strategic Asset Allocation on a monthly basis. All funds that carry a current Zenith rating are subject to ongoing due diligence. where they are closely monitored in regards to a range factors. this is the standard industry practice for model portfolio return calculations. or changes at an organisational level. 8. In order to determine the performance of competitor products. Zenith also calculates a range of risk and consistency statistics which are displayed in the model portfolio reports. For the purposes of performance calculations. In addition to the return of the portfolio. 12 . deterioration of investment performance. The median manager used for performance comparison with the Zenith Balanced Portfolio has an allocation of 60% growth assets and 40% defensive assets (“60/40 Median”). The exception to this is for platforms such as Colonial First State’s FirstChoice platforms. changes to investment process. when building the Australian shares component of the portfolio. The calculation of the median manager is best illustrated using an example. however. and some will have a slightly lower risk profile than 60/40. and displayed for comparative purposes in the Zenith Balanced Portfolio report. While we realise that monthly rebalancing is not practically possible for most adviser groups. A Highly Recommended growth-style fund is available. Performance statistics for the 60/40 Median are then drawn from the median performance statistics of this universe. it is important to ensure that the portfolio is not overly exposed to value or growth style funds. Median Managers As discussed in the Objectives of the Portfolio section (Section 2) of this report. where the manager fee and platform fee are not separated and therefore. the median allocation of growth and defensive assets across this universe is exactly 60% growth assets and 40% defensive assets. including: any changes in investment personnel. which match the risk/return profile of each of the Zenith portfolios. then Zenith is happy to use Recommended rated funds. Zenith aims to outperform competitor products of a similar risk/return profile over the medium to longer term. The entire 42 fund universe used for the 60/40 Median is shown on the following page. but before any wrap platform fees are deducted. There are currently 42 funds in the universe used for calculating the 60/40 Median. 9. % of Negative Months. These statistics include: Standard Deviation. Zenith has created a series of “median managers”. drawn from the universe of diversified funds. Some of these funds will have a slightly higher risk profile than 60/40.
