The MI Hawksmoor Distribution Fund is designed to have broad appeal, and to be a core long-term investment for those seeking actively managed exposure to financial markets with income as a priority. The primary aim of the Fund is to deliver an attractive level of income.
How do we achieve this?
We will invest in a range of income-producing financial assets via both open and closed-ended funds. We use closed-ended funds to gain exposure to high income-producing asset classes, such as specialist property and alternative fixed income.
What is the investment time horizon?
As with all our Funds, you may see fluctuations in the value of your investment over the short-term, so you need to share our long-term perspective in order to increase the likelihood of superior long-term total returns.
What is the yield target?
We aim to ensure the Fund’s yield will always be at a premium to a composite index of financial asset classes (equities, bonds, property and cash). The intention is to increase the distribution alongside an increase in capital growth in order to maintain an attractive distribution yield for new and existing investors. Therefore, you should expect to receive a total return on your investment that will be somewhat correlated to financial markets given the Fund’s fully invested, albeit diversified, portfolio.
What are the asset exposure parameters?
As a constituent of the Investment Association’s Mixed Investment 40-85% Shares Sector, the Fund will at all times have a minimum of 40% and a maximum of 85% in equities.
