Volatility in Rates Eased For Now
TwentyFour Select Monthly Income Fund is a London listed closed-ended fund which is designed to take advantage of the premium returns available from “less liquid” instruments across the debt spectrum. These securities, do not offer enough liquidity for daily priced OEICs, but are well suited to a traded closed-ended vehicle, where investors can obtain liquidity via the exchange and the quarterly buyback facility that the fund offers.
This part of fixed income has been largely overlooked in the recent liquidity driven market, and therefore currently represents attractive relative value.
The fund aims to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns, principally through income distributions by investing in a diversified portfolio of fixed income credit products.
The fund is targeting a dividend of at least 6% per annum, payable monthly, and a net total return of 8-10% per annum. There is enhanced liquidity through the placing programme and quarterly buyback facility.
