The Fund aims to provide regular monthly income with medium risk exposure. Established to provide our investors with a target return of 4.0% p.a. over the RBA official cash rate, the Diversified High Income Fund is an income fund that invests in cash, “fixed income” type securities, trusts investing in direct property or mortgages and other managed funds.
Performance figures have been calculated in accordance with the Financial Services Council (FSC) standards and are net of management fees. No allowance has been made for taxation. Performance assumes the reinvestment of income distributions. Past performance is not necessarily an indicator of future performance.
The Diversified High Income Fund offers a means for investors to invest their cash in a well-diversified range of assets Our aim is for investors to receive a distribution each month and for the unit price of the Fund to be stable with the potential for some growth in the unit price.
The diversification of assets held by the Fund provides a “one-stop” means for investors to access assets and asset classes generally only available to wholesale investors with an ability for investors to withdraw their capital monthly so they are not “locked into” assets or funds often having much longer timeframes for capital return.
The Benchmark return of the Fund is the RBA’s official cash rate plus a margin of 4.0% p.a. Note that the Fund’s return may vary month-to-month and we suggest investors look at a minimum time frame for holding an investment in the Fund of 1-2 years.
Since commencing in August 2019, the Fund has out-performed its Benchmark Return
True to its name, a hallmark of the Fund is the investment diversification that investors achieve. The diversification is achieved not just in terms of the assets in the Fund which investors may not be able to readily access themselves, but also because the Fund has a low market price correlation to cash, equity and property prices, so investors achieve diversification of their existing equity and property portfolios – this diversification enhances the investor’s overall investment portfolio.
The risk profile of the Fund is carefully managed with strict controls on asset selection and ongoing monitoring of assets in the portfolio. A key objective of the Fund is to minimise the chance of permanent capital loss.
The Fund may invest up to 20% outside Australia but all investments will be on a fully-hedged basis to Australian dollars. The Fund is prohibited from borrowing money to buy assets or securities, so the Fund’s return is not ‘leveraged’ by debt as this adds significant risk. Some of the assets, particularly the commercial/ property trusts, held by the Fund may be geared within those trusts as part of the normal course of their business. However, the Diversified High Income Fund has no direct debt.
The Fund is managed in a way that enables investors to redeem their capital quickly – redemptions are possible in full or part at the end of every month (and generally paid within 5 business days after month-end). Investments and redemptions are done at the same unit price as there is no “bid/offer” spread – this enables investors to cost-effectively move capital in and out of the Fund.
