How we invest your money

The Underlying Fund invests in indirect and direct government, corporate, mortgage and other fixed interest securities. While the Underlying Fund invests predominately in investment grade* securities, the Underlying Fund may invest in non-investment grade fixed interest securities and emerging market debt. The Manager currently seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing in other funds it manages. The Underlying Fund may also hold cash.

In pursuing the investment objective the Manager applies a wide range of diverse strategies including duration** analysis, credit analysis, relative value analysis***, sector allocation and rotation**** and individual security selection. The Manager's investment strategy emphasises active decision making with a long-term focus and seeks to avoid extreme swings in duration or maturity with a view to creating a steady stream of returns.

*A credit rating of investment grade' indicates that the securities have a lower probability of default on interest and capital repayments, compared to non-investment grade securities.

**Duration' is the measure of the sensitivity of fixed interest investments to changing interest rates, and is measured in terms of years (the larger the number of years in duration, the higher the price sensitivity to changes in interest rates). Duration takes into account the redemption date, the dates when interest is paid, and the amount of that interest.

***Relative value analysis' is an assessment of the intrinsic value of a company, government or financial institution relative to other companies, governments or financial institutions.

****There are several sectors to global bond markets, including government bonds, corporate bonds, high yield securities, mortgages, and inflation-linked bonds and emerging market debt. Sector rotation' refers to the Manager actively allocating' the risk between the different sectors of the bond market.
