Fund Objective
To outperform the Reserve Bank of Australia cash rate by 2.5% p.a. before fees and taxes over rolling three-year periods with no negative returns on a 12 month rolling basis.
Fund Strategy
The option is an active absolute return strategy that invests in a range of domestic and international fixed income securities denominated in various currencies. With a focus on managing downside risk, the option has the flexibility to invest in cash and other debt securities (such as government bonds) to help preserve capital during downturns in the credit cycle. In adopting an absolute return approach, the most critical element of the investment process is to identify which assets to own and when to own them.
