Objective and strategy

The Ashburton Stable Income Fund is an actively managed cash fund which is designed to deliver returns that are higher than that of a traditional money market unit trust fund. It differs from a money market fund for the reason that the investment manager is able to invest in income generating instruments with a longer maturity than that of a traditional money market fund. The investment objective of the fund is to maximise the current level of income within the restrictions set out in the investment policy, while providing high stability of capital. It aims to achieve performance returns in excess of money market yield and current account yields. 

Investor profile
