In their own words

"The Conservative Fund target asset allocations are 20% in growth assets and 80% in income assets. Its objective is to reduce the likelihood of negative returns over the short term with higher proportions of investment in defensive assets, such as cash and bonds, while still providing an opportunity for positive real returns over the longer term by investing a smaller proportion of the Fund in growth assets such as equities and property."
