Affluence reopens LIC fund

30 November 2017 By Oksana Patron



Boutique fund manager Affluence Funds Management has reopened its Affluence LIC Fund, which invests only in ASX listed investment companies (LICs), for just one month in December, to take advantage of the “the abundance of opportunities in the LIC market”.

With LICs trading at unusually large discounts to NTA and the sector being under-researched, it presented a significant source of opportunities, according to Affluence’s chief executive, Daryl Wilson.

The company said there were over 100 LICs in the market, with more expected to come.

Wilson also stressed that while the fund was still quite small and it only opened infrequently to new investors.

While it was only available to wholesale investors, retail investors could still access it through the Affluence Investment Fund.

“Contrary to what most people think, one of the best advantages a fund manager can have is to be managing less money, not more,” Wilson said.

“For this reason, we’re carefully managing growth and capacity in this fund. By doing this, we can invest in opportunities that larger fund managers have no chance of executing.”

The Affluence Link Fund offers quarterly distributions, targeting a five per cent income yield, has zero fixed fees (performance fees only) and says it offers easy to read investor reports.
