Investment Objective & Strategy
The Affluence Investment Fund aims to provide you with the following:
- A minimum distribution yield of 5% per annum, paid monthly.
- A total annualised return (distributions plus increase in unit price) of at least inflation plus 5% over rolling 3 year periods.
- Access to a diversified portfolio of underlying investments.
- Volatility of returns which is less than half of the ASX200 Index, measured over rolling 3 year periods.
The Fund aims to achieve this by investing with 20 to 35 of the very best investment managers across all asset classes, predominantly through unlisted managed funds. We invest with them in a way which we believe balances maximum returns with low volatility.

As with all investments, the Fund is subject to risks. If these risks eventuate, they may result in a reduction in the value of your investment in the Fund and/or a reduction or cessation of distributions. Distributions are not guaranteed, nor is the return of your capital. Past performance is not indicative of future performance.
It is important that you know that the value of your investment will go up and down over time, the Fund’s returns will vary over time, future returns may differ
from past returns, and returns are not guaranteed. All of this means that there is always the chance that you could lose money on your investment.
