As interest in higher-yielding income increases, Zenith has awarded the Ausbil Active Dividend Income Fund a timely ‘Recommended’ rating. Zenith said “Ausbil’s focus on the sustainability of dividends, rather than high dividends, is a key attraction of the Fund.” “Ausbil’s investment process is robust, incorporating macro-economic indicators, a sound valuation process and intuitive qualitative inputs.” The ratings agency added that the fund’s portfolio manager, Michael Price, was well qualified to manage the Fund, given his expertise and experience managing equity income portfolios.
