How it works
The Fund aims to provide investors with regular income and capital protection by investing via a selection of high quality Australian and international fixed interest managers.
This fund may be suited to the defensive component of an investment portfolio to provide protection against equity risk, as historically fixed interest has provided capital return in falling equity markets. The portfolio is strategically managed based on market opportunities and the style and skills of leading fixed interest managers from around the world.
- Minimum initial investment of $25,000
- Regular income with distributions paid quarterly
- Regular savings plan available
- Add to your investment at any time (minimum additional is $500 or $50 per month via a regular savings plan)
- Access to a diversified portfolio
Defensive or conservative
To invest in this style, you would have a low tolerance for losses and risks which naturally leads you to give up on a larger return that comes with higher-risk investments. This investment style often looks to fixed income products such as cash, loan funds and bond funds. Usually at least 60% of this portfolio would be in defensive assets.
Recommended investment timeframe
Recommended for at least a 3 year investment period.
