Simply Sophisticated | Begin your journey with the CAREphilosophy®

The CAREphilosophy® has been in use for over 15 years and it has helped advisers to successfully manage their clients investments through good times and bad, including the Global Financial Crisis.

It does this by combining a sophisticated investment process based on the leading portfolio theory, and a deep understanding of the history and cycles of investment markets, in a framework that is easy for our clients to understand, which is so important because having confidence in your portfolio helps you avoid the big mistakes that most people make when reacting to bad news.

In 2013 as managed portfolios became available in Australia we used the CAREphilosophy® to create the CARE managed portfolios. With over 5 years of proven and documented track record, the portfolios have been providing our clients with consistent returns over time.

Why start with
CARE Essentials

CARE Essentials™ - Designed using the same methodology as the existing Comprehensive CARE portfolios*.

CARE Essentials™ have roughly 70% of exactly the same investments, with the other 30% being carefully selected low cost alternatives.

*Please consult with your financial adviser or go to for further details on CAREphilosophy®.

The ‘Core’ investments provide an investor low cost, broad diversification to the major asset classes including Australian and international shares, listed property trusts and Australian and overseas bonds. They are invested according to your risk profiles and follow a long-term buy and hold process.

The ‘Active’ investments of your portfolio are designed to take advantage of long-term market themes and attempt to smooth your total portfolio return by systematically adjusting allocation to undervalued or overvalued asset classes, following the unique traffic light approach.

The ‘Enhanced’ investments of your portfolio are made up of Australian (50%) and international shares (50%) that seek higher investment returns than the broad market by weighting investment factors such as value, momentum quality and small size.

Designed as a solution for clients who want to get started on the CARE journey but are on comparably lower balances. CARE Essentials™ allow an easy transition to the existing Comprehensive CARE as your portfolio grows.

Having a good performing, low cost portfolio is a really important part of building the wealth you will need to achieve financial independence and a great retirement.

What are the
CARE Essentials portfolios

Example of growth asset allocation*

The CARE Essentials™ portfolios enable your financial adviser to easily achieve the required asset allocations that are aligned with your risk profile and financial objectives.

* The indicative ‘target asset allocation’ is calculated assuming an investor has a ‘Growth’ risk profile and should not be viewed as the actual allocation for your own investments.
