Investing for income requires both the company and the dividends to be strong and sustainable. This will allow you to generate a consistent and dependable income stream over the long-term. Since launching in 2012, our Lincoln Australian Income Fund has been applying our quantitative methodology to invest in a portfolio of Stock Doctor Star Income Stocks, an elite group of ASX companies prized for their Financial Health, high quality and exceptional yield. The fund aims to provide income well above the market average and cash rates – a great outcome for retirees in preservation phase and SMSFs especially in an ongoing low-interest rate environment.
All Lincoln Indicators Managed Funds are established to provide investors with maximum peace of mind about the security of their investments. Not only do we invest in financially healthy companies that have a low risk of failure, but we also hold all client investments in a segregated trust with our custodian J.P. Morgan Chase Bank. Furthermore we are regulated by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) in Australia with strict regulatory requirements which govern exactly what we can and can’t do.

No, the Income Fund has no minimum investment timeframe and you will not be penalised if you decide to redeem your funds within a short period of time. But we suggest a minimum of 5-years to allow an adequate timeframe for the Fund to deliver on its long-term objectives.
The buy and sell spread is the difference between the net asset backed value of the units and the price to which you can purchase or sell those units. Similar to brokerage costs, when you transact in financial assets there are facilitation costs incurred. The buy/sell spread are implemented to recoup facilitation costs, so as not to disadvantage existing unitholders. It is important to note that the buy/sell spread is not a ‘fee’ and the spread itself is retained within the unit trust, it does not benefit the fund manager or any of the other service providers.
Distributions are paid quarterly, with the option to reinvest or receive cash directly in to your nominated bank account.
