I use an investment account for my travel finance. This method may not be for everyone, but it works for me personally. Taxable investment account gives you to grow your fund quicker. I’m uncomfortable using the same 90/10 stock/bond split I use for my long-term investment accounts, though. Instead, I use a 65/35 stock/relationship split for a little more balance in the profile. My asset allocation is accomplished using low-cost exchange-traded money (ETFs).
The weighted average age group of funds during launch and planned call day of the 3 Astrea Class A-1 bonds are as follow. Their lifespans superimposed onto the PE J-Curve are shown in Fig. 3 below. Astrea III bonds (blue range) can last from the 6th to 9th 12 months of the underlying PE funds that Astrea III spent into.
- Profit taking Targets
- Investment banking is focused on INDUSTRY knowledge
- Tracks performance of 30 top dividend-paying REITs (take note: NOT Market Cap weighted)
- Trust Bank Limited
- B3 – basic principle investment
- 20% – Socially, paying of mobile phone costs + creating cable connections

This is the sugary spot that people discussed previous — enter around the 5th year and exit before the 10th year. It really is most likely the safest of the 3 Astrea bonds. In fact, they have just been announced that this bond would be redeemed as scheduled in 2 weeks’ time.
Astrea IV bonds (crimson line) will last from the 7th to the 12th year of the underlying PE funds. The PE funds are producing a lot of cash currently, with total net distributions (after deducting capital phone calls) of USD243M in Astrea IV’s first 12 months of existence. That is equivalent to 22% of its stock portfolio value at the time of IPO.
However, as shown in Fig. 3, the amount of distributions is forward expected to decline moving. Astrea V bonds (brown line) can last from the 5th to the 10th year of the underlying PE funds. In comparison to Astrea IV bonds, there is a little more risk initially, as the ongoing companies in the PE funds are less mature and less ready to be exited. Furthermore, there are higher capital calls expected. But if these dangers in the initial years can be overcome, Astrea V bonds will have less risks towards the finish in comparison to Astrea IV bonds, as cash flows towards the tail-end wouldn’t normally have dropped as much.
When you go through the risks of Astrea IV and Astrea V bonds, some of the safeguards that Azalea put in place for the bonds start to make a lot of sense. Let’s talk about Astrea V bonds first, as it is simpler. As mentioned, one of the main element risks for it is higher capital calls. This is mitigated by the capital call facility which allows Astrea V to borrow funds from the banks to meet the capital calls.
