Investment philosophy

Our investment philosophy is based on the belief that an actively managed, diversified exposure to Australian and international fixed income assets can deliver superior risk-adjusted returns to a pure Australian exposure. This reflects the fact:

  • There is a much broader universe of fixed income assets globally;
  • Actively allocating over a broader range of assets can enhance returns over the investment cycle; and
  • Greater diversification can reduce the volatility of the underlying portfolio over time.

Investment objective

The Fund aims to provide investors with a total return (after management costs) in excess of the returns measured by relevant debt indices (50% Barclays Capital Global Aggregate Index (A$ hedged), 50% Bloomberg AusBond Composite 0+ Yr Index), when measured over rolling three years.

Investor suitability

This Fund is best suited to investors who seek to diversify their fixed income exposure through investment in a mix of Australian and international securities and across the fixed income asset class.
