Capital Guaranteed

This option invests in capital guaranteed products issued by life insurance companies. This means that the issuing life insurance company guarantees the capital invested as well as the investment returns and not CareSuper. A capital guarantee does not however guarantee the level of future investment performance, other than that it won’t be negative.
The asset allocation for this option is mainly made up of capital guaranteed investments. From time to time, this option may also invest in the term deposits of Authorised Deposit Taking Institutions and hold a modest amount of cash for liquidity purposes. These securities are not covered by the guarantee.
