What does this fund do?

The monthly income fund aims to pay roughly the same amount of income each month^ so that you can budget with confidence. The fund targets an above-market income that is sustainable and consistent, as well as some capital growth, over the long term.

How do we do it?

We think of delivering a sustainable income as a bit like a jigsaw puzzle –  all the pieces have to be in place for the picture to come together. Assets will yield differently at different times, so we will strategically combine diverse sources of income to target a high and resilient yield, year-in, year-out. 

What do we invest in?

We will invest in income funds, whose underlying assets may include UK and overseas equities, bonds, gold and targeted absolute return strategies. Assets such as property and infrastructure, which are renowned for their income-paying potential, are also expected to contribute to the fund’s yield.

We believe in transparency, so you can see a full list of what the VT Chelsea Managed Monthly Income fund invests in below.
