Hostplus’ highest duty is to always act in the best interests of all our members.
Like many major and well-diversified superannuation funds, the Fund invests in a wide range of assets; both listed assets, such as those in public markets (e.g. stock exchanges) and unlisted assets, such as property, infrastructure (e.g. airports, utilities and toll roads), and in private equity and venture capital (e.g. start-ups or developing private companies).
Hostplus is at all times responsible for the Fund’s investments, including establishing, reviewing and giving effect to an investment strategy for each investment option that has regard to the liquidity of the investments covered in the strategy and the expected future cash flow requirements.
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on global investment markets is particularly our focus presently. In these challenging times, we believe in keeping our members informed about where they are invested, including by outlining the liquidity of the Fund’s investments in cash, bonds and shares.
The following table provides details of the asset allocation structure of the total Fund.
