The Bentham Global Income Fund is actively managed and focused on generating stable investment income. The Fund provides diversified exposure to domestic and global credit markets.
Investments are actively managed with allocations across different credit sectors, trading of individual securities and managing risk. A global focus provides more investment opportunities and diversity when compared with managers who focus only on domestic fixed income markets. Credit markets typically offer higher income than equities and government bonds, with lower levels of correlation. This may improve the risk/return profile of a balanced investment portfolio.
- Access to global investment opportunities not typically available to direct retail investors
- Diversified sources of income
- Unique wholesale asset classes with specialist expertise
- Monthly income distributions
- Daily unit pricing
- Australian domiciled trust with more than 15 year’s track record.
