5 Things to consider before you invest Even the simplest of investments come with a level of risk. While the idea of investment risk can be confronting, it s a normal part of investing. Without it you may not get the returns you need to reach your financial goals. This is known as the risk/return trade-off. Many factors influence an investment s value. These include, but aren t limited to: market sentiment changes in inflation growth and contraction in the Australian and overseas economies changes in interest rates defaults on loans company specific issues liquidity (the ability to buy or sell investments when you want to) changes in the value of the Australian dollar, and changes in Australian laws and those of overseas jurisdictions. Volatility The value of an investment with a higher level of risk will tend to rise and fall more often and by greater amounts. In other words, it s likely to be more volatile than those with less risk. As demonstrated in the following graphs, investments that have often produced higher returns over long periods can be volatile in the short term. By understanding volatility will occur, you ll be able to manage your expectations and resist reacting to these short-term movements. This will help you stay true to your investment strategy, and keep on track to achieve your long-term goals. 5

That s because different types of investments perform well in different times and circumstances. When some are providing good returns, others may not be. You can diversify across different asset classes, industries and countries as well as across investment managers with different approaches. The more you diversify the less impact any one investment can have on your overall returns. One of the most effective ways of reducing volatility is to diversify across a range of asset classes. -40% -20% -60% -40% -60% Australian cash Period ended 31 December Australian fixed Period income ended Australian 31 December shares Australian cash Australian fixed income Australian shares Source: Calculated by JANA using data provided by Global Financial Data, Inc. and Thomson Reuters Datastream

7 Defensive and growth assets Asset classes are generally grouped as either defensive or growth because of their different characteristics. Both defensive and growth assets are included in a multi-asset portfolio because they generally perform differently. For example, fixed interest may be in a portfolio to provide returns when share markets are weak. In some market conditions, both defensive and growth assets may deliver low or negative returns. The main differences between defensive and growth assets are: Assets classes include How they are generally used Risk and return characteristics Asset classes Defensive Cash and fixed interest securities To generate an income and stabilise returns Expected to produce lower returns than growth assets over the long term and be less volatile Growth Shares, property and private markets To provide long-term capital growth Expected to produce higher returns than defensive assets over the long term and be more volatile Asset classes are groups of similar types of investments. Each class has its risks and benefits, and goes through its own market cycle. A market cycle can take a couple of years or many years; it s different each time. In the description of each investment option, we include a minimum suggested time to invest. Investing for the minimum time or longer improves your chances of achieving the return you expect. However, returns can t be guaranteed. You need to be prepared for all sorts of return outcomes when investing. Here are the main asset class risks and benefits. Cash Cash is generally a low risk investment. Fixed interest (including term deposits) When investing in fixed interest, you re effectively lending money to businesses or governments. Things to consider: Fixed interest securities are usually included in a portfolio for their defensive characteristics. Returns typically comprise interest and changes in the market value of the security. There are different types of fixed interest securities and these will have different returns and volatility. The market value of a fixed interest security may fall due to factors such as an increase in interest rates or concern about defaults on loans. This may result in a loss on your investment. The interest rate on a term deposit is fixed for its specified term. This means if held until maturity, the return on the term deposit won t be affected by changes in interest rates. Fixed interest securities denominated in foreign currencies will be exposed to exchange rate variations. Things to consider: Cash is often included in a portfolio to meet liquidity needs and for its defensive characteristics. The return is typically interest which may also be referred to as yield. Cash is usually the least volatile type of investment. It also tends to have the lowest return over a market cycle. The market value tends not to change. However, when you invest in cash, you re effectively lending money to businesses or governments that could default on the loans, resulting in a loss on your investment. 7

8 Things to consider before you invest Property Investing in property will give your portfolio exposure to listed and unlisted property in Australia and around the world. Listed property securities are referred to as Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). Things to consider: Property is usually included in a portfolio for its income and growth characteristics. Returns typically comprise distribution income and changes in values. Returns are driven by many factors including the economic environment in various countries. Property returns can be volatile. Investing outside Australia means you re exposed to exchange rate variations. Australian listed property securities are dominated by only a few REITs and provide limited diversification. Australian shares This asset class consists of investments in companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (and other regulated exchanges). Shares are also known as equities. Things to consider: Australian shares can be volatile and are usually included in a portfolio for their growth characteristics. The Australian share market has recently been dominated by a few industries such as Financials and Resources. Returns typically comprise dividends and changes in share prices. Dividends may have tax credits attached to them (known as franking or imputation credits). Returns are driven by many factors including the performance of the Australian economy. International shares International shares consist of investments in companies listed on securities exchanges around the world. Things to consider: International shares can be volatile and are usually included in a portfolio for their growth characteristics. The number of potential investments is far greater than in Australian shares. Returns typically comprise dividend income and changes in share prices. Returns are driven by many factors including the economic environment in various countries. When you invest globally, you re less exposed to the risks associated with investing in just one economy. Investing outside Australia means you re exposed to exchange rate variations. Private markets Investing in private markets gives your portfolio exposure to assets that aren t traded on listed exchanges. An example of this is an investment in a privately owned business. Things to consider: Private markets are usually included in a portfolio for their growth characteristics. Returns are driven by many factors including the economic environment in different countries. Private markets can be volatile and can take years to earn a positive return. Private markets are usually included in a portfolio to provide higher returns than share markets in the long run, and to increase diversification. Private markets are illiquid which makes them difficult to buy or sell. To access private markets you generally need to invest in a managed fund that invests in private assets. Because private assets aren t listed on an exchange, determining their value for a fund s unit price can be difficult and may involve a considerable time lag. Alternatives These are a very diverse group of assets that aren t like the mainstream assets of cash, fixed income or shares. Some examples include hedge funds, infrastructure, and gold. Things to consider: Because alternatives are diverse, they may be included in a portfolio for their defensive or growth characteristics. Alternative investments are usually included in portfolios to increase diversification and provide returns that aren t strongly linked with the performance of mainstream assets. For some alternatives, such as hedge funds, it can be less obvious what assets you re investing in than with other asset classes. Some alternative investments are illiquid, which makes them difficult to buy or sell. 8

9 To access alternative investments you generally need to invest in a managed fund that, in turn, invests in alternatives. Because most alternative investments aren t listed on an exchange, determining their value for a fund s unit price can be difficult and may involve a considerable time lag. Alternatives invested outside of Australia may expose your portfolio to exchange rate variations. Investment approaches Investment managers have different approaches to selecting investments. There are two broad approaches: passive and active management. Passive management Passive, or index managers, choose investments to form a portfolio which will deliver a return that closely tracks a market benchmark (or index). Passive managers tend to have lower costs because they don t require extensive resources to select investments. Active management Active managers select investments they believe, based on research, will perform better than a market benchmark. They buy or sell investments when their market outlook alters or their investment insights change. The degree of active management can vary. Active managers may deliver returns quite different to the benchmark. Active managers have different investment styles and these affect their returns. Some common investment styles are: Bottom-up focuses on forecasting returns for individual companies, rather than the market as a whole. Top-down focuses on forecasting broad macroeconomic trends and their effect on the market, rather than returns for individual companies. Growth focuses on companies they expect will have strong earnings growth. Value focuses on companies they believe are undervalued (their price doesn t reflect earning potential). Core aims to produce competitive returns in all periods. Ethical investing We have an Environment, Social and Governance Risk Management Policy (ESG Policy), which applies to the MySuper Default option. The ESG Policy, available on superau.bhpbilliton.com, outlines the processes in place to assess ESG factors for the MySuper Default option, including consideration of ESG factors in investment decisions; monitoring of investment managers to assess how they identify, evaluate and manage ESG factors within their portfolios on an ongoing basis; and maintaining a research program in relation to ESG themes and trends. The ESG Policy does not require any specific methodology in assessing ESG factors, nor does it require any specific factor to be taken into account. For other investment options, we expect the active investment managers to consider any material effect ESG factors may have on the returns from their investments, however we don t require them to. Investment techniques Investment managers may use different investment techniques that can change the value of an investment. Some of the main investment techniques are explained below. Derivatives Derivatives may be used in any of the investment options. Derivatives are contracts that have a value derived from another source such as an asset, market index or interest rate. There are many types of derivatives including swaps, options and futures. They are a common tool used to manage risk or improve returns. Some derivatives allow investment managers to earn large returns from small movements in the underlying asset s price. However, they can lose large amounts if the price movement in the underlying asset is unfavourable. Investment managers, have derivatives policies which outline how derivatives are managed. Currency management If an investment manager in Australia invests in assets in other countries, the returns in Australian dollars will be affected by movements in exchange rates (as well as changes in the value of the assets). An investment manager of international assets may protect Australian investors against movements in foreign currency. This is known as hedging. Alternatively, the manager may keep the assets exposed to foreign currency movements, or unhedged. The exposure to foreign currency can increase diversification in a portfolio. 9

10 Things to consider before you invest Gearing Gearing can be achieved by using loans (borrowing to invest), or through investing in certain derivatives, such as futures. Gearing magnifies exposure to potential gains and losses of an investment. As a result, you can expect larger fluctuations (both up and down) in the value of your investment compared to the same investment which is not geared. Investment managers can take different approaches to gearing. Some change the gearing level to suit different market conditions. Others maintain a target level of gearing. It s important to understand both the potential risks of gearing, as well as its potential benefits. When asset values are rising by more than the costs of gearing, the returns will generally be higher than if the investment wasn t geared. When asset values are falling, gearing can multiply the capital loss. If the fall is dramatic there can be even more implications for geared investments. For example, the lender requires the gearing level to be maintained below a predetermined limit. If asset values fall dramatically, the gearing level may rise above the limit, forcing assets to be sold when values may be continuing to fall. In turn, this could lead to more assets having to be sold and more losses realised. Withdrawals (and applications) may be suspended in such circumstances, preventing you from accessing your investments at a time when values are continuing to fall. Although, this is an extreme example, significant market falls have occurred in the past. Recovering from such falls can take many years and the geared investment s unit price may not return to its previous high. Other circumstances (such as the lender requiring the loan to be repaid for other reasons) may also prevent a geared investment from being managed as planned, leading to losses. You need to be prepared for all types of environments and understand their impact on your geared investment. Short selling Short selling is used by an investment manager when it has a view that an asset s price will fall. The manager borrows the asset from a lender, usually a broker, and sells it with the intention of buying it back at a lower price. If all goes to plan, a profit is made. The key risk of short selling is that, if the price of the asset increases, the loss could be significant. Short selling example (loss) An investment manager short sells by selling 1,000 futures contracts of ABC index at $100 each. When the futures contract price rises to $120, the investment manager buys the same number of contracts to close the position. Trade No of contracts Contract price Multiplier Total income/cost Opening sell 1,000 $ $1,000,000 Commission $(200) Closing buy 1,000 $ $(1,200,000) Loss $(200,200) Short selling example (profit) An investment manager short sells by selling 1,000 futures contracts of ABC index at $100 each and closes the position when the futures contract price falls to $80. Trade No of contracts Contract price Multiplier Total income/cost Opening sell 1,000 $ $1,000,000 Commission $(200) Closing buy 1,000 $80 10 $(800,000) Profit $199,800 10

11 Considering an investment option The information below explains terms used in the profiles for each investment option. Term used in profiles Investment objective About the investment option The investment option may be suited to you if Minimum suggested time to invest Asset allocation Estimated number of negative annual returns Explanation Describes what the investment option aims to achieve over a certain timeframe. Most investment options aim to produce returns that are comparable to a benchmark (see below for more information on benchmarks). The performance of an investment option should be judged against its objective. Describes how the investment option is structured and managed. Suggests why you may be interested in investing in this particular investment option. Your own personal objectives and circumstances will also affect your decision. Investment managers suggest minimum time frames for each investment option. Investing for the minimum suggested time or longer improves your chances of achieving a positive return. However, investing for the minimum time doesn t guarantee a positive return outcome. Your personal circumstances will determine how long you hold an investment. Shows the proportion of an investment option that s invested in each asset class. The range shows the minimum and maximum amount that may be held in each asset class at any time. s are usually market indices that are publicly available. Shares are often benchmarked against a share market index and fixed interest against a fixed interest market index. Other benchmarks can be based on particular industries (eg mining), company size or the wider market (eg S&P/ASX200 or the MSCI World Index). s for multi-asset portfolios may be: made up of a combination of market indices weighted according to the asset allocation (commonly known as composite benchmarks), or a single measure, such as inflation. A common index of inflation, which is the rise in the cost of living, is the Consumer Price Index (CPI). When comparing returns to a benchmark you should consider: whether the investment option s return is calculated before or after fees and tax are deducted, and the period over which the return should be measured. We use the Standard Risk Measure (SRM) to help you compare the investment risk across the investment options we offer. The SRM is the estimated number of negative annual returns in any 20 year period. Because it s an estimate, the actual number of negative returns that occur in a 20 year period may be different. The SRM is based on industry guidelines, however it isn t a complete assessment of investment risk. For example, it doesn t: capture the size of a possible negative return or the potential for sufficient positive returns to meet your objectives, or take into account the impact of fees and tax. These can increase the chance of a negative return. Information on how the SRM is calculated is available on superau.bhpbilliton.com 11

13 Choosing your path MySuper Default option The MySuper Default option is a diversified investment option designed to meet the needs of most members of the Fund. The MySuper Default option is broadly diversified within asset classes, across asset classes and across underlying investment managers. If you don t make an investment choice, your super money will go into the MySuper Default option. Or, you can choose an investment option from one of the following paths which are designed to suit your level of involvement and investment knowledge. Diversified options There is a range of diversified investment options available so you can select an expected risk and return profile to meet your needs. At the lower end of the risk and return potential is the Conservative option, which invests mainly in defensive assets such as fixed interest and cash. At the higher end of the risk and return potential is the Aggressive option, which invests mainly in growth assets such as shares. This comprehensive series of investment options means, wherever you are in life you can choose an investment solution to suit you. These options are actively managed and broadly diversified within asset classes, across asset classes and across underlying investment managers. Investing in a diversified option is an easy way to gain access to sophisticated investments. This way you can implement your financial plan with confidence. Sector-specific options There is a range of single-sector investment options available. Single-sector investment options cater for people looking for a complete asset class solution. They are managed on an active basis. We also offer the Cash Option which invests in deposits with banks and other comparable securities. You should have some understanding of investments, including the difference between the main asset classes before selecting an investment option. You should carefully consider the risks of investing your entire account balance in a single-sector investment option and whether this represents adequate diversification.
