Pendal Active Balanced – asset allocation

The Additional Investment Options reference guide (for accounts opened before 11 June 2013) of the above PDS’s incorrectly states the asset allocation as:


28–48% - Australian Shares
12 – 32% - Global Shares
0-10% - Australian property securities
0-10% - Global property securities
5-32% - Australian fixed interest
0-20% - Global Fixed Interest
0-10% - Cash
0-20% - Alternatives


The information on page 15 of the Additional Investment Options reference guide (for accounts opened before 11 June 2013) should be as follows:

This document may include general advice but does not take into account your individual objectives, financial situation or needs.
