What is an income investment fund?

Income funds are ideal for investors looking to generate a regular income from their investment. The goal of our income funds is to provide customers with a competitive investment return at relatively low risk. This type of investment fund is based on a broad range of different asset classes like bonds, short-term money markets and other securities such as mortgages. This diversification helps to spread the investment risk, but because income funds are more subject to short-term volatility than cash funds, they’re best suited to investors with a medium to long-term outlook.

Income funds at Tasmanian Perpetual Trustees

Note: an Income Fund investment is not a term deposit with a bank and has a different risk profile. You should consider this fact when deciding to invest.

Tasmanian Perpetual Trustees Offers three different income funds: the Fixed Term Fund, Long Term Fund, Select Mortgage Fund. As they are all income funds, they are all suitable for investors with a medium to long-term outlook.
