Fund Profile

Category: SICAV

The Fund aims to generate a high level of income on your investment. The Fund invests globally at least 70% of its total assets in equity securities (e.g. shares). The investment adviser (IA) may use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) to reduce risk within the Fund’s portfolio, reduce investment costs and generate additional income. FDIs are investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets. The Fund may, via FDIs, generate varying amounts of market leverage (i.e. where the Fund gains market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). The IA has discretion to select the Fund's investments and in doing so may take into consideration the MSCI AC World Index Minimum Volatility. Recommendation: This Fund may not be appropriate for shortterm investment. Your shares will be distributing. The amount of dividend income payable on the shares will be determined by a committee appointed by the Directors of the Fund, which will aim to pay stable dividend income monthly, although this is not guaranteed. Dividends will be calculated on the basis of the expected gross income and expected gains, if any, arising from share class hedging over a given period. In the event dividend income is paid from the capital of the Fund, it will result in capital erosion and may constrain further capital growth. The Fund’s base currency is US Dollar. Your shares will be denominated in Australian Dollar. Your shares will be “hedged” with the aim of protecting them from exchange rate fluctuations between their denominated currency and the base currency of the Fund. You can buy and sell your shares daily. The minimum initial investment for this share class is US$5,000 or currency equivalent.
