The Affluence Investment Fund provides access to a diversified investment portfolio of the best fund managers as selected by Affluence. We aim to provide a distribution yield of approximately 5%pa, paid monthly and a total annualised return of at least inflation plus 5% over rolling 3 year periods. We aim to deliver these returns with less volatility than the stock market.
The Affluence Investment Fund had another strong month in November, increasing by 1.6%. The ASX 200 also increased by 1.6%.
This month the Affluence Investment Fund celebrated its three-year performance track record. Since commencing in December 2014, the Fund has returned 10.4% per annum. This has included 6.9% per annum monthly distributions to investors and a 3.5% per annum increase in the unit price of the Fund. Over that same period, the Fund has outperformed both our benchmark of 6.8% per annum (inflation plus 5%) and the ASX 200 (including dividends) of 8.7% per annum.
Key positive contributors during the month were in resources, property and global stocks. Negative performers among the portfolio were minimal, with a small number of funds down around 2%, all of which have been strong performers in previous periods.
We added one new investment to the Fund this month. We also topped up positions in a number of existing Fund holdings.
At month end, 59% of the Fund was invested in unlisted funds, 17% in the Affluence LIC Fund, 10% in listed investments, and 14% in cash.
