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% per annum, paid monthly
  • 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 increased by 0.8% in June, with the benchmark increasing 0.6% (inflation plus 5% per annum).

After a difficult calendar year 2018, the Fund has made a solid start to 2019 with returns of 5.2% over the last six months. While the Fund has lagged the remarkable recovery in equity markets over this period, we remain very optimistic about the future potential in the portfolio.

Since commencing in December 2014, the Fund has returned 7.7% per annum. This has included 6.6% per annum monthly distributions and a 1.1% per annum increase in the Fund unit price. Over that same period, the Fund has outperformed our benchmark of 6.8% per annum (inflation plus 5% per annum).

The most significant positive contributors in June included our position in the US Masters Residential CPUs (up 14%), the Baker Steel Gold Fund (up 20%), the Packer & Co Investigator Trust (up 7%).

The largest detractors included investments in Aveo Group, Tribeca Global Natural Resources, Unibail-Rodamco- Westfield and the Affluence LIC Fund.

At month-end, 65% of the portfolio was invested in unlisted funds, 16% in the Affluence LIC Fund, 13% in listed investments and 6% in cash.
