Launched in April 2012, the MI Hawksmoor Distribution Fund’s primary aim is to deliver an attractive level of income, whilst also delivering capital growth over the medium to long term (defined as rolling periods of 3-5 years). The Fund is designed to have broad appeal and to be a core long-term investment for any of your clients who are looking for actively managed exposure to financial markets with income as a priority.
In doing this, we will 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.
In striving to achieve these targets, we will invest in a variety of financial assets which can be volatile. We will seek to mitigate this volatility by ensuring a diversified portfolio of assets, each of which shares the common characteristics of a margin of safety and low intra-asset correlations.
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.
