AP3 asset allocation
AP3 bases its investment strategy on allocating assets across six risk categories: Equities, Fixed Income, Credits, Inflation, Currencies and Absolute Return Strategies.
This approach provides an effective structure for analysing and projecting future returns and risk for different assets with similar risk profiles. These projections, combined with macroeconomic analysis, valuations and assessments of investors’ risk appetite, form the basis for allocation decisions. Exposure is defined as underlying market value that is exposed to changes in value arising due to market movements. Use of derivatives to manage risk and bring greater efficiency to asset management operations may result in exposure being greater or less than total fund capital.

1) Absolute return strategies consist of risk mandates which no capital allocations are made and return can therefore not be fairly measured.
