Monthly Fund Update

Fund update: 29th February 2020

Pinnacle aShares Dynamic Cash Fund (Managed Fund)

Highlights for the month

As shown in the table, Z3RO’s income exceeded the RBA Cash Rate return for February. The main contributors to performance came from major Australian bank NCDs in addition to ING and ME Bank NCDs and VW CP, with an even spread across 1 to 3-month maturities. There was a slight lengthening of the weighted average duration of the portfolio (to 0.14 years) relative to the previous month driven by a reinvestment of a maturing NAB NCD out to late May.

The portfolio performance has been achieved in the context of falling cash rates with the RBA cutting the official rate 4 times in the last 9 months to the current level of 0.50% per annum.

A distribution of 3.73 cents was declared at the end of February.

Fund Performance

Benchmark is Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Cash Rate. Inception date is 27 August 2019.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Returns are calculated using the net asset value per unit at the start and end of the relevant period in AUD, with distributions reinvested, and net of applicable fees, costs and taxes (other than tax paid as an investor in the Fund). The returns also do not reflect the transaction costs imposed on the creation and redemptions of units, brokerage or spreads incurred by investors when buying or selling units on the ASX.
