The investment case

Investment in bridges, roads, rail networks, hospitals, and the growing need for more sustainable renewable energy sources from solar and wind farms means these sectors are the cornerstone of the country’s economic welfare. This is appealing because the relatively long operational time frame of the projects and high operating margins are often underpinned by long-term government backed subsidies or other long term contracted payments.




Investment Process

TIME:Defensive Income Securities adopts a Smart Beta approach to investing, an approach known as a hybrid between an actively or passively managed fund.

Rather than using a traditional fund manager-led stock-picking strategy, TIME:Defensive Income Securities employs this investment strategy to select individual companies for the fund.

We use a combination of financial, commercial and performance criteria to select robust qualifying businesses.

We select only liquid, asset-backed companies with attractive yield pay outs. Together with periodic rebalancing of the asset-class weightings, this ensures the fund includes the most appropriate companies on a ‘buy and hold’ basis.

The fund also looks to reduce the volatility usually associated with listed shares and the UK equity income market.

We believe this Smart Beta approach provides a robust investment strategy, overlaid with a pragmatic invest approach to ensure the strategy is maintained.
