Overview

Colonial First State offers a range of Index Multi-Sector options. These options provide easy access to broad market exposure across major asset classes, while keeping fees low. Index investing does not seek to outperform the return of the index; the aim of an index fund is to provide a return that is the same as the return of the index before fees.

There are six Index Multi-Sector options, each investing in a range of asset classes:

  • Colonial First State Index Conservative (30% growth, 70% defensive)
  • Colonial First State Index Diversified (50% growth, 50% defensive)
  • Colonial First State Index Moderate (60% growth, 40% defensive)
  • Colonial First State Index Balanced (70% growth, 30% defensive)
  • Colonial First State Index Growth (80% growth, 20% defensive)
  • Colonial First State Index High Growth (100% growth)
