Generating higher income without exposure to the share market
Actively managed to generate a higher income
The Bendigo Income Generation Fund (Fund) is a defensive/conservative style investment. Designed to provide regular income consistently higher than traditional cash investments, it is actively managed to balance risk and return opportunities through different market conditions.
The Managed Fund product/s referenced on this page are issued by our wholly owned subsidiary Sandhurst Trustees Limited.
Minimum initial investment $2,000
Ability to add to your investment
Quarterly income distributions
How it works
The Fund aims to deliver income returns of 2% above the AusBond Bank Bill Index (before fees).
The Fund works in a similar way to our Sandhurst Strategic Income Fund (SSIF), but with the potential for a higher return. This is achieved through the active management and allocation of assets, taking on more risk to allow the Fund to achieve higher returns.
The credit securities the Fund will invest in include corporate bonds, asset backed securities (including residential mortgage backed securities), hybrid securities, money market securities and other income securities including syndicated loans. And whilst this Fund allocates more assets to ‘riskier’ securities, they are still considered Income Assets (generally more stable). The Fund does not invest in equities. Read our ‘Types of Investments’ article to find out more.
This Fund may be ideal for an investor looking for a higher return than other Income Funds, is comfortable taking on a higher level of risk, but still wanting some stability within the fund.

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.

Why invest in a managed fund
A managed fund is a professionally managed investment portfolio that pools your money together with the money of multiple investors. An Investment Manager then buys and sells shares or other assets (property, cash, bonds etc) on your behalf.
