Separately Managed Accounts – Capital Stable

6 Jul 2021
In June 2019, Perpetual and Mainstream started using Rivkin Portfolio's in their Separately Managed Account (SMA) offering that gives investors the opportunity to follow our proven strategies. Rivkin runs four portfolios that are offered through the SMA platform. Each portfolio is designed for a different investor type ranging from growth to defensive. Here you can find more information on our Capital Stable Portfolio.

Capital Stable

This portfolio targets a low volatility portfolio that aims to achieve a return of 4% above the Reserve Bank cash rate. It is perfect for investors who want modest return with lower risk than the broader stock market.

Table 1: Summary of Capital Stable Portfolio

The Capital Stable portfolio holds four Exchange Traded Funds that have been selected due to their low correlation with each other. What this means is that the overall portfolio aims to produce returns with a very low level of day to day fluctuation in the portfolio value. This is perfect for investors who don’t have a high tolerance for risk.


The SMA product has been running live since June 2019 and therefore results for the Capital Stable portfolio within this structure go back to this date. The table below shows monthly returns for this portfolio after all fees and brokerage. Returns for June represent performance from the launch date of 12 June to the end of the month.
