Pheim Income Fund

Fund Goals / Features

Pheim Income Fund aims to provide its Unit Holders with consistent income returns in the medium to longer term by investing primarily in medium to long-term fixed income instruments. A smaller percentage of the fund is also invested in equites and other high yielding instruments.
