Improve investment outcomes with Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming more prevalent in the world of investments – something investors can no longer ignore.

In addition to the Glacier AI Flexible Fund of Funds – which celebrated its third anniversary in September 2021 – Glacier has expanded its range of AI funds to include the Glacier AI Balanced Fund.

The Fund is fully managed using AI technology, which eliminates human emotion, enabling the Fund to actively and quickly adapt to changing market conditions, thereby reducing risk and improving outcomes for investors.

The Fund aims to produce equity-like returns (inflation plus 5% over rolling five-year periods) at lower levels of risk, making it suitable for less aggressive investors. The Fund is Regulation 28 compliant and can be used by investors saving for retirement, as well as those drawing an income in retirement.

What is artificial intelligence?

AI is the theory and development of computer systems that are able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, through machine learning techniques. These systems are able to perform specific tasks better and quicker than a human.

AI advantage

Markets today change and move faster than ever before, and conventional ways of managing funds often can’t keep up.

In this environment, AI can enhance investment strategies by:

  • Being self-learning and adaptive – the AI engine can quickly adapt to changing environments and markets and self-adjust its methods to minimise investment risk
  • Being predictive – the AI engine aims to identify and predict evolving market behaviour on a systematic and objective basis
  • Reducing human error and removing emotions from investment decisions.

The Glacier AI Balanced Fund demonstrates Glacier’s ongoing commitment to innovation, and to seeking ways to improve the investment experience for clients. Please speak to your adviser for more information.

Investments are subject to risks. The performance of the portfolio depends on the underlying assets and variable market factors. Investments can go down as well as up as a result of changes in the value of the investments. There is no assurance or guarantee of principal or performance and there is no guarantee that a portfolio will achieve its objective. Investors may lose money, including possible loss of principal. The Fund may from time to time invest in foreign instruments, which could be accompanied by additional risks. Collective investments are traded at ruling prices and may engage in borrowing and scrip lending. Collective investments are calculated on a net asset value basis, which is the total market value of all assets in the portfolio, including any income accruals and less any deductible expenses such as audit fees, brokerage and service fees. A schedule of fees and charges and maximum commissions is available from the Manager.
