Why Walk The World has partnered with Nucleus Wealth for Superannuation:

Nucleus Wealth’s Head of Investments Damien Klassen and Martin North discuss the current issues we see in many super funds, such as unlisted assets and lack of transparency.

Walk The World Super (powered by Nucleus Wealth) seeks to take advantage of global growth opportunities whilst ensuring that there is a firm view on macroeconomic downsides can materially impact your superannuation balance.

By offering high transparency, ethical and portfolio tailoring and personal advice about the most appropriate portfolio for your circumstances, Walk The World Super strives to right what is wrong with Australian Superannuation.

Ethical tailoring that fits your beliefs

We believe the decision of what your super supports in should be in your hands.

We offer over 30 different Ethical screens for you to select what to exclude from the portfolio that can be altered at any time.

Unlike other super funds where the fund manager makes that decision for you, with Nucleus Super you’re only excluding stocks that you don’t wish to support.

Fund Customisation & Structure

 

More Information:

The relationship between Walk The World and Nucleus Wealth

With rates being cut to ribbons recently, savings rates are set to stay low for years. As the RBA chair Phil Loew recently said, savers now have to take market related exposures to generate returns.

This raises the question, what product offers the right solution? It would offer complete transparency, a range of tailorable options, reasonable fees, and reliable performance with a strong focus on downside protection.

The good news is Walk The World has partnered with Nucleus Wealth to present an option you might want to explore; Walk The World Fund and Walk The World Super.

Walk The World aims to inform viewers that Nucleus Wealth might of interest to them and worth investigating for themselves. If one of these viewers happens to invest with a Nucleus Wealth fund, then Martin North and Walk The World will receive a commission.

Portfolio Information

1. Tactical Funds 

In these funds, we make the decision when and what mix of Australian shares, International shares, cash or bonds to invest in.

There are three sub-funds, and typically we will blend all three of these funds for you so that you get a mix of assets appropriate for your income needs and your risk preference: 

  • Growth: In this fund there is a higher weighting of growth investments. Clients with a lower tolerance for risk can blend this model with other models to achieve a more appropriate risk outcome.
  • Accumulation:  This is a conservative portfolio for investors who do not have an income requirement. There is a low weighting of growth investments, and we buy stocks in this portfolio without regard to the dividend yield.
  • Income: This is a conservative portfolio for investors who have a preference for income rather than capital gains. There is a very low weighting of growth investments, and stocks in this portfolio are screened for yield.

2. Tactical Foundation 

This is a fund for investors with lower balances. It aims to provide investors with an introduction to the benefits of individual share ownership through a separately managed account, whilst still ensuring investors maintain a reasonable share parcel size.

 We again make the decision when and what mix to buy of Australian shares, International shares, cash or bonds.

Due to the lower balances though, direct international share ownership is not feasible and so this model achieves this through an individual Australian share portfolio, a selection of International exchange traded funds, and defensive holdings in bonds and cash.

3. Shares only portfolios

These are “carve outs” of the Australian or International parts of the above portfolios.

They are a core holding,  designed to have exposure to the large capitalisation part of the Australian or International market. Its intended for investors who wish to do their own asset allocation, and can use this fund to get exposure to higher quality and cheaper stocks in the Australian market.

The funds maintain minimal cash balances – i.e. the tactical funds above will reduce share weights when stock markets are expensive or risky, whereas this fund will remain fully invested. It is up to the investor to manage the asset allocation when buying this fund

Fee Information

Whilst engaging professionals to look after any part of your life is going to cost money, it should not mean the difference between a great and a less than ideal retirement. At Nucleus Wealth, we strive to keep costs low by cutting out the many middlemen that reside in most of the current investment options available today.

If you choose to invest in a personal super account with Nucleus Wealth there are three fees that are charged:

  • An investment management fee paid to Nucleus for making the investment decisions of 0.64%.
  • A platform fee paid to a 3rd party platform provider (Praemium) not related to Nucleus. This money provides you with custodial services, tax reporting, online access and trading. The fee varies depending upon the amount invested from 0.10-0.36% (fully explained in the Product Disclosure Statement)
  • There is an $12 per month superannuation fund accounting fee for personal superannuation accounts (this fee is not charged on non-super accounts)
  • Brokerage Costs. We have secured very low-cost brokerage. 

Costs are important.

Our mission is to provide a technology-based investment solution that delivers portfolio tailoring, transparency and world-class investment research to our clients whilst sharing the cost efficiencies that come with not needing a branch on every corner.

As an investor with the Nucleus Wealth, you only pay the costs associated with your account, not for the managed pool as found in other alternatives, and take advantage of the minimised worldwide brokerage and administration costs that come with using a platform that is not owned by a large institution.

When you apply, we provide a full breakdown of the costs for your investment.
