How we invest your money
Generally, exposure will be to fixed rate notes. The duration profile of the Fund is actively managed through the use of derivatives such as swaps and futures. The investment process aims to reduce the risk of the Fund being adversely affected by unexpected events or downgrades in the credit rating of the Fund's investments. A disciplined framework is used to analyse each sector and proposed investment to assess its risk.
The Fund gains exposure to securities either directly or through funds managed by a member of the Macquarie Group. The Fund may be exposed to derivatives to implement its investment strategy. For example, protection may be purchased on issuers that are believed to be over-valued or at risk of downgrade. These positions increase in value when the underlying instrument falls in value and decrease in value when the underlying instrument rises in value. The portfolio is generally hedged to Australian dollars. Small active currency positions may be taken when the Investment Manager believes that there are opportunities to add value.
