About the Fund

The Income Fund gives our clients access to a diverse portfolio of fixed interest investments from around the globe. This fund combines our rigorous investment research with active portfolio management. As well as being an option to invest in this fund as part of a diversified investment strategy across our managed funds, this fund offers an alternative to bank deposits. Your money is invested throughout the world in a range of industries and sectors that are not available in Australasia, providing added diversification. Because this fund is designed to be a more conservative fund there are no investments in shares. You can also access your money at any time and there is a low minimum for investment.

Why choose the Income Fund

Cash and fixed interest plays an important stabilising role in any investment portfolio. Think of it as something of a financial umbrella to offer your portfolio protection in difficult market conditions. This is because these types of investments are expected to offer more stable, though lower, returns over the long term.

Highlights and lowlights —January 2021

Your portfolios: Highlights and lowlights

A highlight in January was the portfolio’s investment into Netflix Inc. The company reported another solid set of financial results for the final quarter of 2020 and management stated the need for external capital to fund ongoing content investment has abated due to growing free cash flow generation. As a result, the company’s stock price and bonds reacted positively with the portfolio’s Netflix bond delivering a total return of circa 4.2% (in local currency terms) during the month. Another portfolio highlight was Ryman Healthcare. Back in December, the company issued its inaugural secured bond which we invested in. This transaction looks to have been well received by investors with the investment appreciating in price over the month reflecting robust ongoing demand.

Growing optimism surrounding both the economic recovery ahead and the likelihood of inflation rising continues to weigh on high-grade bond prices (yields are rising). We have been on guard against such an outcome since late September, when our indicators began suggesting the global economy was shifting from repair in recovery. To protect the portfolio from the adverse impact of a cyclical rise in bond yields, we have been reducing its sensitivity to interest rate movements over the past few months and will likely maintain this tactical approach until the economic outlook looks to be peaking.
