Did you know?

That dividends on Australian shares alone make up more than 5% of all Australian household income?

This high figure, much higher for many retirees, is a function of two built in ‘biases’ amongst Australian investors.

Australian investors have two 'biases'

Home country 'bias'

Despite the barriers to international investing (such as cost and access to information) coming down in recent years, investors still exhibit a home country bias to their investment portfolios. This is most pronounced in Australia where as much as 70% of an investor’s share portfolio is made up of Australian shares despite the market cap of all ASX listed companies only being 3% of global market cap.

Australian investors have two 'biases'

Equity income 'bias'

Australian investors have a high concentration to Australian shares relative to more diversified instruments like ETFs and within that Australian share category, they have a high concentration to Australian bank shares, making up 4 of the top 5 shares by weighting in the average SMSF portfolio.

SAVE makes it easy for you to diversify your income sources by asset class and geography.

SAVE invests in a variety of income generating assets diversified across geographies and asset classes, which is important as it gives the strategy consistency of income not reliant on any one source. 

Income is achieved across equities, fixed income (government and corporate bonds) and income earned from hedging non-Aus asset exposures into AUD where the Australian interest rate is higher than the interest rate of the foreign asset (FX hedge carry).

The portfolios asset allocation is dynamic and carefully monitored and adjusted to produce an optimal, yet consistent level of income for investors. 

Targeted consistent income above the cash rate (cash + 4%) paid monthly

In today’s low-yield environment, Australian investors seeking income are wise to invest beyond the traditional domestic cash and fixed income products which are no longer generating satisfactory levels of income. 

SAVE is a highly diversified global multi-asset portfolio which is designed to provide superior yield for investors, aiming to deliver consistent income of 4% above the RBA Cash Rate and pay monthly dividends.

Access the benefits of diversification for a smoother journey

SAVE offers the ability to move outside the ‘efficient frontier’ of single asset class investing. By combining the diversification benefits of global and local bonds and equities, together with conservative security selection, SAVE enables investors to reach their income needs but with lower volatility, enjoying a smoother journey while invested.

SAVE is designed and constructed to provide superior and consistent returns for investors with less risk than the equity market.

The portfolio has a beta of 0.5 relative to the equity market, meaning it has roughly half the equity market risk. The diversified nature of the portfolio reduces the volatility and risk of a capital drawdown and allows for a smoother journey of stable returns for investors.
