ASX dividend shares represented by cash in jeans back pocket

According to the latest Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC) weekly economic report, the banking giant continues to expect the cash rate to remain on hold for some time to come.

In light of this, the interest rates on offer with savings accounts and term deposits are likely to remain at significantly low levels for the next few years at least.

But don’t let that hold you back from generating a decent passive income. Listed below are two ASX dividend shares that offer investors attractive yields.

Here’s what you need to know about them:

Aventus Group (ASX: AVN)

The first dividend share to look at is Aventus. It is Australia’s largest fully integrated owner, manager, and developer of large format retail centres.

Thanks to the quality of its tenancies and its exposure to everyday needs and national retailers, Aventus has been able to collect rent largely as normal during the pandemic. This has led to the company reporting both revenue and profit growth during the first half of FY 2021.

Goldman Sachs was pleased with its performance and appears to believe more of the same is coming in the future.

It currently has a buy rating and $3.04 price target on its shares and is forecasting a ~16.6 cents per share distribution this year. Based on the current Aventus share price of $2.83, this represents a 5.9% yield.

Rural Funds Group (ASX: RFF)

Another ASX dividend share to look at is Rural Funds. It is the owner of a portfolio of high quality Australian agricultural assets that are leased to experienced operators.

Like Aventus, it has been on form in FY 2021. In February Rural Funds released its half year results and revealed adjusted funds from operations (AFFO) per unit of 6.6 cents. This means it is on track to achieve its full year forecast.

It also revealed that its ultra-long weighted average lease expiry (WALE) metric had lengthened further. It was up from 10.9 years to 11.1 years over the six months.

Another positive was that management reaffirmed its FY 2021 distribution guidance of 11.28 cents per share and unveiled its FY 2022 guidance of 11.73 cents per share.

Based on the current Rural Funds share price of $2.38, this will mean yields of 4.7% and 4.9%, respectively.
