The objective of the Sub-Fund is to endeavour to maximise the total level of return for investors through investment, primarily in debt securities and money market instruments issued or guaranteed by the Government of Malta, and equities and corporate bonds issued and listed on the Malta Stock Exchange.
The Sub-Fund forms part of the CCFunds™ SICAV plc and Operates under the UCITS structure which has become the gold standard for EU investment funds for retail investors. UCITS funds are ideal for retail investors as they have been specifically designed to ensure diversification and liquidity through distinct parameters, permitted asset classes and investment restrictions as set out in EU law.
The Malta Balanced Income Fund is managed by a group of investment professionals at Calamatta Cuschieri Investment Management Limited who monitor market developments on a daily basis.
Key Features of the Fund

(i) Eligible debt securities and/or money market instruments issued or guaranteed by Governments of EU, EEA and OECD Member States other than Malta, their constituent states or their local authorities; and/or
