Aviva Investors has launched a multi-asset fund to help deliver long-term sustainable income for people planning their retirement.
The Aviva Investors Sustainable Income and Growth Fund is a global, bottom-up vehicle that aims to provide 5% natural income with long-term capital growth from a portfolio of 80 to 120 securities drawn from over 25,000 names in the MSCI All Country World Index and the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond Index.
Francois De Bruin, fund manager, Aviva Investors Sustainable Income and Growth, said: "Companies will be selected on the basis of sustainable business models and underlying revenue streams, with an emphasis on cash flows to deliver compounding interest over time.
"By focusing on assets likely to generate dividends and coupons during draw down, rather than selling shares for income, the Fund will help mitigate the risk of permanent loss of capital when markets are depressed."
De Bruin is supported by a core investment team of Mirza Baig, head of Governance, Anton Kerkenezov, Emerging Market Debt fund manager, and Cyril Martin, head of Aviva Insurance Solutions.
