The Affluence LIC Fund provides access to a diversified investment portfolio of ASX Listed Investment Companies (LICs) selected by Affluence. We aim to outperform the ASX200 Accumulation Index over rolling 3 year periods, with less volatility than the stock market. The Fund provides exposure to a broad range of underlying investment styles, investment strategies, and geographies.
Affluence LIC Fund Report Summary
The ASX200 increased 1.4% in August, with the Affluence LIC Fund increasing by 1.0%. Returns since inception for the Fund are 13.0% per annum, compared to the ASX 200 Index of 13.1% per annum.
It’s pure coincidence that returns since inception are the same as the ASX200, as we got there a different way. The ASX200 has had a strong period of performance, so it is pleasing to have kept up with the market. We have delivered these returns with lower volatility (far better than average).
In August one of the biggest contributors for the Fund was NAOS Small Cap Opportunities (NSC) up 13.6%. MFF Capital Investments (MFF) was also up 7.9%.
At the end of August, the Fund held investments in 26 Listed Investment Companies representing 80% of the Fund and 20% in cash. Also included are some LIC call options and ASX 200 Index put options.
