Cash and fixed interest funds

Cash and fixed interest funds can play an important role in any portfolio and usually deliver more stable returns with lower volatility than share funds.

Why invest in cash and fixed interest funds?

Our range of cash and fixed interest funds are designed to deliver stable income generation coupled with low capital volatility. Fixed interest investments are referred to as ‘conservative’ or ‘defensive’ assets because they usually deliver more stable returns with lower volatility compared to other asset classes like Australian shares.

The benefits of investing in cash and fixed interest funds can include:

  • investing across a range of different assets can help to protect your investment during times of economic and market volatility
  • allocating funds across a number of assets can help secure your investment over the long term
  • a strong diversification strategy can help mitigate legislative or regulatory risk
  • considers Environmental, Social and Governance issues when selecting investments
