The Income Fund's objective is to deliver capital appreciation through regular interest-bearing bonds and equity dividends.
The income generated is paid out quarterly or rolled up, depending on the investor's requirement. The Fund's strategy is driven by a thematic thought process where the Manager seeks to align the portfolio with powerful, incontrovertible trends that will provide a long-term tailwind to the selected securities.
The Income Fund has the ability to invest across a wide range of assets to fulfill its mandate including: Government Bonds, Corporate Bonds and Equities. We are active managers and not constrained by stock market indices or benchmarks.
