The Affluence Investment Fund provides access to a diversified investment portfolio of the best fund managers as selected by Affluence. We target distributions of 5%pa, paid monthly and total annualised returns of at least inflation plus 5% over 3-year periods. We aim to deliver these returns with less volatility than the stock market.

Report summary

The Affluence Investment Fund decreased by 0.6% in February.

Since commencing in December 2014, the Fund has returned 9.8% per annum. This includes 6.7% per annum monthly distributions to investors and a 3.1% per annum increase in the unit price. Over that same period, the Fund has outperformed our benchmark of 6.9% per annum (inflation plus 5%). Fund returns have also exceeded the ASX 200 (including dividends) of 8.6% per annum.

Key positive contributors during the month included the Totus Capital Alpha Fund (up 4.6%), the Bronte Capital Amalthea Fund (up 4.6%), the Ophir High Conviction Fund (up 3.8%), and the Antipodes Global Fund (up 1.9%). We also had a number of investments that had returns of minus 3% or more for the month. After working through these bigger falls, we are comfortable with the reasons for their results.

At month end, 59% of the Fund was invested in unlisted funds, 16% in the Affluence LIC Fund, 11% in listed investments, and 14% in cash.
