Notes to editors
1. About Defensive Income Portfolio The portfolio suggested investment term is up to five years and invests in leading global equity indices.
The minimum credit rating required is BBB- and the minimum investment amount is £10,000.00.
Defensive Income Portfolio is administrated by James Brearley & Sons Ltd (FCA number 189219).
The investor will receive a target income payment of 2% on each quarterly payment date. Coupons distributed by notes held within the managed portfolio will be retained and will either be distributed in line with the income objective, or reinvested. The coupon payment dates are the 15th January, April, July and October.
The managed portfolio is designed to be held for a five-year rolling period. While the investment manager does offer daily opportunities for the investor to sell back the portfolio where required. If the investor decides to sell their investment, the return received will be dependent on the current market value of the managed portfolio’s investments and may therefore be less than the original investment.
The portfolio will be evaluated daily and is available as a direct investment, ISA or SIPP, Hilbert will receive a management fee of up to 1% per annum to cover the investment management and administration associated with the managed portfolio.
