Deals come thick and fast in European ABS after summer recess
TwentyFour Income Fund Limited is a London listed closed-ended fund which targets less liquid, higher yielding UK and European asset backed securities. This part of the fixed income market has been largely overlooked and therefore we believe represents attractive relative value. A large majority of the securities are also floating rate, thereby offering investors upside to future central bank rate rises.
The fund aims to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns, principally through income distributions by investing in a diversified portfolio of UK and European asset backed securities.
The fund is targeting a dividend of at least 8p per ordinary share, per annum, payable quarterly, and a net total return of 6-9p per annum. Realisation elections may be made at three year intervals whereby fund shareholders may elect to realise all or part of their holdings of ordinary shares or, alternatively, continue their investment in the fund. Due to the predominantly floating rate nature of the portfolio, returns are expected to increase as interest rates rise.
