Nedgroup Investments Balanced Fund

This portfolio was previously called the Truffle MET Balanced Fund

The reason for the renaming is that the portfolio has been included in Nedgroup Investments’ Best of breed™ offering, following a rigorous and independent screening process. This is a wonderful endorsement of our capabilities. The mandate, our investment approach and all other aspects of how we manage the portfolio remain the same.
