Fund Objective
The objective of the Fund is to generate a consistently competitive return from a highly secure, medium to long term investment. The IMS Fixed Interest Fund is actively managed with the objective of providing returns, before fees, in excess of the Warburg Dillon Read Australia Composite Bond Index on a rolling three year basis.
Fund Strategy
IMS's style is active core, where they manage intentional exposures to duration, yield curve, and issuer margins, around a neutral benchmark position. IMS add value from the management of intentional exposures to duration, yield curve, and issuer margins. When interest rates are expected to fall, the weighted duration of the portfolio is increased. When interest rates are expected to rise the weighted duration is reduced. Investments are mostly in highly liquid Government Bonds, State Guaranteed Bonds, Bank Bills, Bank Deposits.
