Elstree Enhanced Income Fund

Overview

The Elstree Enhanced Income Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of listed floating rate credit securities called hybrids. The Fund is designed primarily for investors who are seeking to earn a rate of return above the bank bill rate of return but are prepared to accept a small degree of capital risk to achieve that objective.

The Fund's total return outcome is determined by the level of cash and franked income received from the Fund's investments and changes in the capital value of the Fund's investments.

The volatility of Fund's return is extremely low due to the greater proportion of the total return outcome being attributed to stable cash and franked income with changes in the capital value of securities having only a relatively minor impact.

As a consequence an investment in the Fund is ideally suited to investors seeking capital stable franked income returns.

The suggested timeframe for an investment in the Fund is at least 3 years.

The Fund is for wholesale sophistocated investors only. The minimum investment amount is $500,000.

Performance Objective

The Fund aims to outperform the UBS Bank Bill Index by a margin of between 2.5 - 3% over a rolling 3 year period.

As at 31 December 2020 the Fund's rolling 5 year total investment return was 8.59% per annum (includes the benefit of franking and is gross of management fees). This compares with the UBS Bank Bill Index rate of return over the same period of 1.52% per annum.

    Will they or won't they cut bank dividends?


    Will the banks continue to pay dividends on their ordinary shares or will they stop paying them and what are the implications for investors in hybrid capital instruments?

    There has been much said and written about this lately and we couldn't let the opportunity pass without comment.

    Inflation siren songs. Be careful what you wish for.


    We've read about it in the press, we've read about it in blogs and we've read about it in broker research notes. We are of course talking about inflation.

    While we don't think an outbreak is imminent we understand that policy makers might have a secret ambivalence to manufacture some because of what it does to debt to GDP ratios. We suggest that (perhaps) manufacturing above trend inflation for a period might not be such a good idea given what it did to real returns and markets in the 1970's.
