How it works

The Fund aims to deliver income returns that outperform the Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index (after fees) over any 2 year period by investing in a diversified portfolio of domestic interest bearing securities across a range of maturities.

The Fund offers more than one class of unit. The term used to describe this type of offering is called “multi-class pricing”. Both units are ranked equally on a return of capital basis and have the same investment portfolio.

Class A investors - $2,000 minimum investment (information on this page is relevant to class A investors)

Class B investors - $500,000 minimum investment. An investor who applies for units in the Fund through a platform is defined as a Platform Investor and is issued with Class B units. Sandhurst may, at its discretion, and when certain conditions are met, offer Direct Investors the opportunity to invest directly in Class B units. Further details of when this may occur can be found in the PDS.

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.
