    Is this just a pipe dream?

    I'm trying to build on my investment strategy, and would just like to hear some opinions on low risk, high yield investments.

    Do they really exist? Or do you tend to sacrifice risk when looking for a higher return?
    How available are they?
    What would be some options?
    What sort of returns could you expect?


    I know it's kind of a broad question, but I'm just trying to get some insight at the moment.

    Cheers.

    Not really.

    But, I'm sure a few here will say something about the Navra Income Fund.

    This reflect a position where the Margin lender has reached the limit for Navra within their loan book. In the case of Calia they allow up to 20% of the value of the fund so say $40 mil out of the $200mil as a example. They have now loaned out the $40mil so no more margin loans avail unitl the fund grows or they allow a larger percentage. I have only used 20% as an example I don't know the actual %.

    Cheers

    What lender was that?

    LE told me that if that happened they would still allow existing unit holders to top up their holdings.

    I hope that is indeed the case.

    Yes, I can confirm that LE will allow top-ups from existing unit holders. Best to check with your account manager to confirm, but they did it for me previously without any problems when I asked.

    BankSA is my lender and they must of just lifted their comfort zone as they are back on the new list as of July 2nd. St George also have them back as ok, after all they are the same lender.

    Might be as a result of the sudden increase in FUM for the retail fund ? I've noticed quite a dramatic increase in the past couple of weeks. Just a guess.

    Posiable and the changing of the minimum investment for the w/s fund might of kicked the retail fund along. I wouldn't mind dropping a 100K in there and sucking the income out for personal use, sitting on my hands and letting 25K build up in available funds is hard though :eek:
