About the Fund

The Perpetual ESG Credit Income Fund aims to provide regular income and consistent returns above the Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index (before fees and taxes) over rolling three-year periods by investing in a diverse range of income generating assets that meet Perpetual’s ESG and values-based criteria

Investment approach

The Fund’s investment process takes an active and risk aware approach by investing in a diversified core portfolio of liquid investment grade credit securities that meet Perpetual’s ESG and values-based criteria.


Perpetual believes these assets provide investors with protection in times of market stress. Perpetual seeks to enhance returns by taking on more risk (in terms of maturity, credit rating or subordination) when favourable market conditions are present. The Fund can also invest in alternative income generating assets such as infrastructure debt.
