How it works
Sandhurst aims to achieve the investment objective of the Fund by investing in a pool of diversified mortgage assets that is consistent with our conservative lending policy.
The Fund predominantly invests in Australian first registered mortgages and mortgage backed securities that are income producing. The Fund also seeks to hold cash and cash equivalent assets to generate income and provide liquidity to the Fund.
- Low minimum initial investment of $2,000.
- Regular income stream through monthly or quarterly income distributions.
- Choice of investment terms from 3 months to 5 years, to cater for a range of investors.
- Ability to choose between income payments being automatically re-invested or direct credited to an account of your choice.
- Access to Bendigo Bank e-banking services available for online banking2
- On the 3 year term investments there is a rainy day access feature, allowing you to withdraw1 25% of your initial investment at anytime during the term.
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.

Early withdrawal may be available at Sandhurst’s discretion in special circumstances, although penalties may apply in the form of a reduced rate of return. From October 23, 2019 the reduced rate of return is 0.10% p.a. and is subject to change. Accessing your funds under the rainy day terms, does not result in a reduced rate of return.
