No new applications are being taken for this fund

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 $500

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.


  • Low minimum initial investment of $500
  • Regular income stream through quarterly income distributions
  • Regular savings plan available
  • Add to your investment at any time (minimum additional is $100 or $50 per month via a regular savings plan)
  • Access to a diversified credit 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 2 to 3 year investment period.
