Mining & Resource Fund

Add to your portfolio

Investor Profile

The unit trust portfolio is suitable for investors who require sector specific exposure to mining and resources shares as part of their overall investment strategy, with maximum capital appreciation as their primary goal over the long term. Investors should have a high tolerance for short-term market volatility in order to achieve long-term objectives. Due to its specialist nature, the portfolio will typically display higher volatility than a general equity unit trust portfolio.
