Some ASX shares have relatively small market capitalisations but they are capable of having quite high dividend yields.

The below businesses have yields that are higher than the market average:

360 Capital REIT (ASX: TOT)

360 Capital is a real estate investment trust (REIT) which invests in a wide range of property-related assets.

It has invested in a few different ASX shares in recent times. Peet Limited (ASX: PPC) is a residential developer that delivers master planned communities, medium density housing and apartments. Another investment was Irongate Group (ASX: IAP), which is a diversified real estate investor and it also has a third-party funds management platform.

360 Capital has also bought half of PMG Group, a New Zealand commercial real estate funds management business.

The forecast distribution guidance for FY21 is 6 cents per security, which translates to a forecast yield of 6.25%.

Pengana Capital Group Ltd (ASX: PCG)

Pengana is a fund manager that runs a number of different strategies including ASX shares, international shares and private equity. The company said that it’s looking to diversify over time by adding new strategies.

In the six months to December 2020, the ASX share said that funds under management (FUM) increased by 15% thanks to both investment performance and net inflows. All of its strategies outperformed their respective benchmarks for the period. The fund manager said that it’s growing FUM on higher margin products.

The Pengana Property Securities Fund was one of the latest products to be launched.

In the half-year result, Pengana grew its interim dividend by 25% to 5 cents per share. That brought the trailing annual payment to 9 cents per share, translating to a grossed-up dividend yield of 8%.

In the latest monthly FUM update, Pengana said its FUM had increased from $3.7 billion to $3.8 billion.

Pacific Current Group Ltd (ASX: PAC)

Pacific is an asset management ASX share that aims to partner with exceptional investment managers. It combines capital (offered through different economic structures) with strategic business development to help those investment managers grow.

Some of its investments include GQG, ROC, Carlisle, Proterra and Victory Park. Those were the ones that saw elevated inflows in the three months to 31 March 2021. It also acquired a stake in Astarte Capital Partners. In that same quarter, it experienced 8.9% organic FUM growth.

Over the last 12 months, Pacific Current has paid an annual dividend of $0.35 per share. That equates to a grossed-up dividend yield of 8.9%.
