The cash rate has been punishing investors with high levels of cash in their investment portfolios in recent years…
Five years ago term deposit were returning over 4% per annum, but today rates are closer to and around 2.0% per annum.
In such an environment, some investors may feel pressured to move greater proportions of their cash holdings into alternative investment options such as shares, which could deliver.
However, savvy investors know the importance of a balanced portfolio and therefore know that it is wise to keep a portion of their portfolios liquid.
How can you get a better return, despite the current cash rate?
At Trilogy, we’re proud to offer a cash-style investment for those seeking a better return on their cash while maintaining access to their money, despite the current low rate environment.
When you invest in Trilogy Enhanced Cash, approximately 70% of your funds are invested to cash, term deposits, direct and indirect investments in other short term debt instruments. The remainder is invested in the Trilogy Monthly Income Trust.
While this means exposing your investment to a higher risk profile, than an investment in a pure cash product, this combination offers diversification to a portfolio whilst aiming to boost your return.
This cash-style investment has consistently delivered monthly returns in a low-yield environment, recently paying investors 4.80% p.a. for the month of June 2019 and 4.13% p.a. since inception of the fund in April 2017.*
Of course, cash-style investments are only one facet of a balanced investment portfolio and we recommend seeking advice from a licensed financial adviser before making an investment decision.
