NorthStar High Income Portfolio
The NorthStar High Income Portfolio is suitable for investors who are seeking a high income and capital growth and are not overly concerned with high levels of capital security. The portfolio is constructed using a broad range of income-producing assets which may include equities, fixed income, property, infrastructure, alternative investments and cash. The diversification of this portfolio will insulate investors from some short-term market volatility. Equity content will typically be around 60%, meaning the portfolio will exhibit moderate downside risk to achieve the required level of capital growth and income.
Due to the nature of underlying holdings, investment in this portfolio should be seen as a long-term strategy. Risk aspects include inflation risk, capital risk, shortfall risk, and exchange rate risk. The portfolio targets a yield in excess of 4% plus capital growth in excess of 2-4% per annum over a rolling 5-year period and is benchmarked against the IA Mixed Investment 40-85% Shares sector average. Values may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
