Fixed payout of 5% per annum (A Dis share class, excluding AUD Hedged)* – With the primary objective of maximising sustainable yield, the fund intends to make a fixed payout of 5% per annum*. The payout will primarily come from a portfolio of global high income bonds and high dividend yielding equities, selected for the quality and reliability of their income.
Capture growth potential globally – Investment opportunities arise from different regions and sectors at different times. By adopting a global, benchmark unconstrained approach in asset allocation and security selection, the fund offers investors the opportunity to capture attractive long-term and short-term growth potential in any countries or sectors. This allows the fund to deliver consistent income with more upside potential.
Enjoy the growth of alternative assets – The fund can invest in alternative assets such as infrastructure, preferred securities, property, mortgage-backed securities (MBS), asset-backed securities (ABS) and municipal bonds. These assets ensure diversification and improve sustainability of the fund’s income, and offer potential growth for investors.
Active asset allocation to maximise yield and total returns – The current asset allocation range in global high income bonds (20 – 90%), global high dividend yielding equities (10 – 50%), alternative assets (0 – 10%) and cash (0 – 20%)1 gives the fund manager flexibility to achieve the fund’s objective of achieving yield and maximising total returns during different phases of the economic cycle. We also implement active downside risk management aiming to protect the fund’s value during volatile markets without sacrificing the income earned from the underlying assets.
Strong experience and expertise – The Fund is managed by Schroders’ three top-class investment teams, namely the multi-asset team, the quantitative equity product (QEP) team and the fixed income team. The multi-asset team is responsible for overall asset allocation and risk management while stock selection is carried out through Schroders’ QEP team for equities and through its fixed income team for bonds, across investment grade, global high yield and emerging market debt. The lead Fund Manager, Aymeric Forest, has 15 years of investment experience, while the multi-asset team has over 60 years of experience in managing asset allocation funds.
Extensive resources and insights – The multi-asset team has more than 60 investment professionals around the world.
