Video: Kames Diversified Monthly Income Fund


Just over three years ago we launched our first outcome-focused multi-asset income solution. Since then the investment world has struggled with low growth, low rates and declining yields. It has encountered global political upheaval, concerns over Chinese growth and a collapse in the oil price. 

Throughout this period the Kames Diversified Monthly Income Fund has consistently steered a path to delivering its 5% [1] income objective plus capital growth whilst managing risk.

With an annualised income return of 5.2% [2] and an annualised total return of 8.68% [3] since launch on 25 February 2014, the Fund has met the objectives consistently and with volatility less than half of global equities.[4]
