AMP Capital Income Generator Fund

Looking for reliable income in one simple investment solution?

To meet financial and lifestyle goals many investors are facing the challenge of maintaining an adequate and sustainable income on their investments. This has become increasingly important in a low-yield world.

The AMP Capital Income Generator Fund seeks to meet this need by providing a regular and stable income combined with long-term capital growth. The Fund invests in a diversified mix of income-producing growth and defensive assets, and has the flexibility to alter the asset allocation across multiple sectors to capitalise on opportunities as they arise.

How does the fund work?

In this simple video we explain the process behind the AMP Capital Income Generator Fund and how it focuses on high-quality, income-producing assets to deliver its goal of steady, reliable income for investors.

Why consider the AMP Capital Income Generator Fund?

  • Regular and reliable income
    Regular and reliable income

    The Fund pays a fixed distribution monthly. 


    The Fund pays investors a fixed distribution each month which is determined annually on 1 April based on an estimate of the income of the Fund. The current annual fixed payout is 4.6% (gross). This provides investors with a reliable and stable source of income over time.

  • Diversification

    A multi-asset solution that invests in a variety of income-generating assets.


    The Fund invests in a 60/40 mix of defensive to growth assets including shares, bonds, property and infrastructure. By holding a diverse mix of assets you are more likely to achieve a more reliable income stream. There is also the flexibility to alter the asset allocation between income-generating growth and defensive assets to maximise income when the opportunities arise and help achieve some capital growth over time.

  • Potential for capital growth

    Aims to provide a positive return on capital over the long term.


    In addition to a regular monthly payment, exposure to income-generating growth assets provides some long-term appreciation in your income and capital. Any capital gains and additional income are reinvested to help grow your capital base on which income is being generated for future years.

What are the key risks associated with the fund?

Risks specific to the Income Generator Fund include the risk of capital reduction or loss and the risk of reduced or suspended distributions. There are also the risks associated with market investments, liquidity and international currency. Please read the Fund’s Product Disclosure Statement for more information.
