Fixed Income Fund

Gleneagle Investment Trust ARSN 605 489 094 with a class known as the “Fixed Income Fund” provides investors with a secure and structured investment opportunity, focusing on capital preservation and regular income. The Fund gives investors access to institutional grade investments not available to the retail market, using specialised techniques generally only available to institutional grade fixed income managers.

Key Points
INVESTMENT OBJECTIVEThe Fund’s objective is to deliver to investors a consistent distribution of income of 5% p.a. paid monthly after fees and expenses. Monthly returns can be reinvested.
INVESTMENT EXPOSUREThe Fund is comprised mainly of Commonwealth Government Bonds, Semi-Government Bonds, investment grade corporate bonds at an institutional level rated BBB- or better, asset backed securities, inflation derivatives, interest rate derivatives, bank bills and Negotiable Certificates of Deposit (NCDs) issued by larger Australian banks.
SECURITYThere has never been a default in these type of bonds in Australia. The portfolio is spread around 250 different exposures to minimise any risk.
LOCATION OF ASSETSThe fund will typically have geographical exposures in the Asia Pacific (predominantly Australia) 85-100%, North America 0-7.5% and UK/EMEA 0-7.5%.
MINIMUM INVESTMENT$50,000 (no maximum)
LIQUIDITYWithdrawals are processed at the end of each month with funds available by the 10th business day of the following month.
FEES & COSTSManagement Fee and costs: 2.2% p.a. (0.183% per month).
Transaction costs 0.15% p.a. (.0125% per month).
If the Return is not sufficient to allow for the payment of all fees and costs, the fees will be waived or reduced.
FEE EXPLANATIONThe Intended Return of the Fund to the investor is 5% p.a which means that the Fund will pay a distribution of 0.4166 % each month (5.0% divided by 12). The fees and costs are deducted out of the excess returns above the Intended Return. If the fund does not earn at least 2.35% p.a. above the intended 5% p.a. return, then all fees and costs will be waived or reduced such that the investor continues to receive the intended return each month.
If the Fund earns more than the Intended Return plus fees, the excess amount will be held in reserve so that the fund can continue to pay the intended 5% p.a. return even if the fund earns less than the Intended Return.
