Targeting consistent distributions
Although income from the Fund’s portfolio of securities will fluctuate, it is intended that the Fund will provide a steady cash flow, targeting a cash distribution of 4% per annum based on the NAV at or around the beginning of the relevant distribution period, paid semi-annually. The Investment Manager and Responsible Entity will endeavour to manage the difference between its actual income and this target. Where actual income is less than 4%, topping up the income with a distribution of capital may occur. The amount or frequency of distributions cannot be guaranteed.

In addition to the general risks of investing, specific risks associated with investing in the Fund include, but are not limited to, investment selection and strategy risk, equity risk and foreign issuer risk.
