The Fund intends to offer investors a higher return than those offered by money market or pure income funds and aims to achieve a return of cash plus 2% p.a. (before fees). It invests in a wide range of income-producing assets, while seeking to protect capital and reduce volatility through active asset management.
This Fund is an actively managed income solution and is suitable for investors seeking higher income returns while enjoying moderate capital growth within a fund that aims to protect the investor's capital and reduce volatility over the medium to long term. Investors looking to grow their income over time without taking excessive risk may benefit by investing in this higher-yielding income fund. The typical investment time horizon would be 1 to 3 years but is dependent on the client's income needs and risk profile.
