The Marriott Income Fund has as its primary objective to maximise income yield as well as achieve capital stability. To achieve this objective, the securities normally to be included in the portfolio will consist of fixed income securities, high yielding securities, non-equity securities and liquid assets. Nothing precludes the Manager from retaining cash in the portfolio or placing cash on deposits. Call rates provide the fund with a benchmark. Although the mandate does not prescribe it, the portfolio is managed in conformity with prudential investment guidelines.
