Gleneagle Income Plus Trust
Matt Hall – Portfolio Manager
Alex Webster – Dealer
An investment in the Trust presents an opportunity to receive monthly income distributions, with a targeted annual yield that is higher than stock dividend yields but with capital volatility that is lower than stock market returns.
- aims to produce regular distributions, which may suit SMSF’s, retirees and other investors seeking regular income payments;
- is a simple and convenient way to get indirect exposure to the dividends of large-cap Australian companies, but with lower volatility than the stock market;
- aims to produce monthly distributions to unitholders.
Features of the Income Plus Fund:
- aims to produce an average annual yield of 6% (net of fees, charges and other costs & before tax);
- Does not utilise Put Options to limit potential portfolio downside exposure, however minimises potential losses via dispersion strategies using Index Derivatives (see below)
The Trust invests only in listed financial instruments, that is instruments traded on public exchanges such as the Australian Stock Exchange. The Trust invests in a mixture of listed securities and their derivatives (options) that are liquid, and whose characteristics fit the investment strategy criteria and mandate.
The primary strategy of the Trust is to firstly earn the dividends which are paid by the shares owned in its primary portfolio and then to convert the unknown, potential capital gains of the underlying shares in which it invests into known, upfront cash payments. The Trust achieves this by investing in the shares and then selling call options linked either directly to the underlying shares or to an index in which those shares are a component. The sold call options generate a cash payment which is known in advance, enhancing the Trust’s yield, but also negate some to all of the available future capital gains applicable to the underlying share investment.
It is important to note that the value of your investment is still affected by the price movement of its direct share investment. The Income Plus Fund is structured to deliver high yield returns with some downside protection. It does this by dispersing risk of the share portfolio via the use of index derivatives.
The Income Plus Fund disperses the volatility risk of the portfolio by selling weighted index call options. This gives the fund balance and lowers the overall volatility of the portfolio, whilst allowing capital growth, some downside protection and yields higher than what the market itself can offer.
