Investment philosophy

Our investment philosophy is based on the belief that fixed income returns move in line with fundamental over time. Sector selection and issuer specific positioning are the dominant sources of return in a credit portfolio. Reflecting this, the fundamental tenets of our fixed income philosophy are:

  • For sector allocations, medium-term returns reflect the underlying fundamentals and risks of lending to different asset classes within the fixed income universe;
  • For corporate credit, medium-term returns reflect a firm's capacity to meet its obligations over time.

Investment objective

The Fund aims to provide investors with a total return (after management costs) in excess of the Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index (Benchmark) when measured over rolling three year periods.

Investor suitability

The Fund is best suited to investors who seek a diversified portfolio of Australian and international securities to gain exposure to credit markets.
