Our methodology

At Colonial First State, we’re committed to bringing you world-class investment strategies to help manage and build your wealth.

We believe the dynamic nature of investment markets, coupled with our expertise, lets us add value over and above the markets we operate in. For many of our funds, we aim for investment returns above those of the relevant market index. Put simply, we aim to outperform the benchmark.

We manage portfolios across a range of different investment styles, asset classes and risk profiles. In each case we believe our role is not to avoid risk, but rather to understand the relationship between risk and reward and to manage risk appropriately, relative to the objectives of the portfolio.

We choose investments and construct our portfolios in a disciplined manner, with an emphasis on identifying and controlling risk. We avoid speculation and ensure our portfolios are appropriately diversified.

We believe in the value of quality advice

We understand that everyone has different financial goals. Speaking with a financial adviser can help you choose the best strategy to complement your financial needs, support your long-term plans and enhance your personal situation. Financial planning is about managing your investments now, while preparing to meet the goals of your financial future.
