Benefits of investing in the CFML Fixed Interest Fund
Investing in the Fund offers investors a range of benefits. Investing in the Fund means that your money is pooled together with that of other investors, allowing you to hold a diversified portfolio of assets which is not often available to you as an individual investor with small amounts to invest. Investment via the Fund gives you access to a well resourced and experienced team of the underlying investment manager that is focused on selecting assets on your behalf in order to deliver attractive long term returns.
Further, the Fund provides a well-diversified bond exposure which may include both Australian and international government and corporate bonds. The composition of the Fund's portfolio in respect to these different sub sectors of the asset class may change significantly over time. Both the interest rate and credit duration of the Fund's portfolio is likely to vary significantly over time.
Bonds are an income oriented asset class. Over the longer term most of the return of the Fund should come from regular bond coupon payments. However capital gains and losses are possible. The Fund is liquid and assets can generally be readily redeemed. The Fund will generally hedge foreign currency exposures; the exact amount will vary with the Fund's targeted hedging ratio (0-100%).
Low to Medium
This Fund is suitable for investors seeking income, who have medium term investment goals and a moderate tolerance for volatility.
