The Standard Life Diversified Income Fund is designed to help clients looking for income by providing them with investment opportunities they typically haven’t had access to before. These new investment opportunities are across asset classes that they can relate to, like social housing and renewable energy.

The fund has the potential to:

  • Supplement income
  • Generate income to support retirement 
  • Grow money over time
  • Diversify risk

The videos below explain more about the fund and why it might be a good option for your clients.

What does the fund invest in?

The fund invests in a broad range of traditional and alternative asset classes including bonds and equities, social housing and renewable energy. 

For example, the UK’s social housing sector is supported by long-term government cash flows, making it an attractive investment opportunity. Similarly, renewable infrastructure benefits from long-dated revenue streams, partly backed by government revenues, and is supported by selling power to national grids. 

Your Business Manager will be able to tell you more about the Fund’s underlying asset classes.

  • A focus on income generating assets
