Buoyed by better news on the US-China trade front, Australian and overseas shares provided the best returns in the portfolio and were key drivers of Core Strategy's performance. Solid returns from our unlisted property and infrastructure assets also added to gains, while steady returns from our bond holdings provided additional diversification benefits.
Over the long term, Core Strategy’s performance has remained solid with gains of +8.07% per annum over the 10 years to end December. This is well above its investment objective of CPI + 3% per year over the longer term, which for members means their retirement savings have been growing faster than the cost of living increases.
