Lincoln Australian Income Fund

A smarter solution for maximising your income.

How do you maintain an adequate income stream in retirement?

Ideally, you need a solution that provides peace of mind by investing in a portfolio of high quality stocks and keeps income flowing without missing out on potential growth. With term deposits and cash rates sitting at historically low levels, these financial products aren’t delivering on the income needs of retirees.

The Lincoln Australian Income Fund provides you with a rare opportunity to benefit from a dependable, high dividend yield (paid quarterly) while reaping the rewards from investing in high-quality, financially healthy stocks.

It is perfectly positioned to suit investors nearing retirement or in retirement on a lower tax rate, who’d like to maximise their income stream and take advantage of franking credits.
