Premier Diversified Income Fund

The Fund aims to provide dividend income and offer long-term capital growth potential by holding a diversified mix of global assets.

The Premier Diversified Income Fund will invest in a range of different types of global assets, designed to produce an income, which will include fixed income (bonds), equities (company shares), property investments and alternative investments (non-traditional types of investment which are not typically expected to move in the same way as equities and bonds). The fund manager will select a range of individual equities and other investments to achieve the objective.

The income will be paid through dividend distributions and will be generated from all the asset classes. The fund aims to generate a long term growing income. Dividends will be paid quarterly. The fund expects to pay three smaller payments (the first three payments in the fund’s financial year) and a larger final payment.

The level of income expected to be paid is not guaranteed and will fluctuate.

The full investment objective and policy, which outline all the eligible investments, are available in the Fund’s prospectus.

Risk and other important information

When you invest, your money is at risk because the value of investments, and any income from them, can go down as well as up and you could get back less than you invested. The past performance of an investment is not a guide to how it will perform in the future. Because there are many different types of investment risk and investors have different attitudes to risk, we are not able to categorise our investments as having a specific level of risk. We would therefore strongly recommend that if you do not have professional experience in matters relating to investments, you should speak with a financial adviser before making an investment decision.

Premier Asset Management is not authorised to provide investment advice or tax advice. Before making an investment decision, it is also important that you read the key documentation for that investment which is available in the literature section of the website, by contacting a financial adviser or by getting in touch with us directly. See ‘Contact us’ for more information or if you are unsure. You can find more details about the specific risks and literature that are relevant to each type of investment on the individual fund, portfolio or investment trust website pages.
