How we invest your money
The Fund provides exposure to a diversified portfolio of predominantly Australian fixed interest securities issued by government or corporate entities and asset-backed securities.
The Investment Manager aims to deliver above index returns by actively managing the main sources of value-add in the Australian fixed interest market using a disciplined and comprehensive investment process based on a combination of fundamental, economic, quantitative and technical analysis of market conditions. This seeks to ensure a balance between short-term technical factors and longer term market trends.
The Fund gains exposure to securities either directly or through funds managed by a member of the Macquarie Group.
While the Fund is hedged to Australian dollars, the Investment Manager may take limited active currency positions when it is believed that there are opportunities to add value using a disciplined active currency investment process.
The Fund may be exposed to derivatives, including derivatives that increase in value when the underlying instrument falls in value, and decrease in value when the underlying instrument rises in value. Derivatives may be used for hedging and active investment purposes.
