“The greater the passive income you can build,
the freer you will become”


Looking for high levels of stable income?

Income is the bedrock of equity total returns in Australia, however to receive it, investors are reliant on a company’s ability and desire to pay dividends. But what happens when some of the biggest companies in the market don’t pay dividends, like during 2020? 

The Talaria Global Equity Fund (Managed Fund) offers Australian investors high levels of consistent income, lower volatility and lower market risk through its unique approach to global equity investing.   

See the comparison with top dividend paying companies in the ASX20 Index (which includes franking credits) versus Talaria’s high income, strong performance, and smoother journey. 

Globally recognised

Since inception, Talaria has generated 7.44% p.a. in income for investors, including 7.35% in the 2022 financial year. As a result we are a leading global equity income fund in Australia.

See the comparative chart of Talaria Global Equity Fund (Managed Fund), versus the average from Australian peers.

Income for lifestyle

From 2008 to 2021, almost all returns from the ASX 200 came from dividends or reinvested dividends. Talaria’s investment process generates an additional and alternate source of income for investors. This income is not reliant on dividends, and for the last 10 years has generated on average over 9.0% per annum for investors.
