How it works
The Fund provides a functional ‘at call’ cash style investment that exhibits capital stability and provides regular income and convenient access to your money. Sandhurst aim to preserve the capital of your investment whilst also generating a competitive return when compared to other similar style cash savings accounts.
The authorised investments of the Fund currently include the following investment classes:
- A bank accepted or bank endorsed bill of exchange which at the time of acquisition has a maturity date of less than 370 days
- A certificate of deposit issued by a bank whether negotiable, convertible or otherwise
- A term deposit with a bank
- Low minimum initial investment of $1,000
- Regular income through quarterly distributions
- Add to your investment at any time
- Ability to have income distributions re-invested
- Funds are generally available at call1
- Access to Bendigo Bank e-banking services available for online banking2
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.
