Clime Australian Income Fund
The Clime Australian Income Fund (CAIF) seeks attractive returns, over the long term, through investing in a portfolio of Australian listed and unlisted securities that display low volatility traits.
The Fund is suitable for those attempting to preserve capital whilst enjoying an income stream above term deposits. The fund is not available to retail investors. You must qualify as a wholesale/sophisticated investor to make an investment.
In the wake of the global financial crisis, Clime commenced successfully investing client’s funds in low volatility high yield ASX listed companies, debt securities, income notes and preferred shares. A critical feature of this style of investing is that in general, debt and hybrid securities rank ahead of the ordinary shares.
The Clime Australian Income Fund is appropriate for investors who:
- Seek to diversify their portfolios across asset classes other than higher growth, higher risk equities and
- Are happy with a steady accumulation of wealth over the longer term at reduced volatility to the equity market.
The Fund is intended to be a low to medium risk fund.
The Clime Australian Income Fund (established July 2015) has an investment horizon of a minimum of 3 years. Short term returns are therefore not necessarily reflective of our long term goals.
