OVERVIEW

About

Aims to provide attractive and regular income distributions, combined with a high level of capital stability, expected to exceed income paid on cash and short-dated term deposits.

  • Assets are invested in a portfolio of senior floating rate bonds issued by Australian banks
  • Eligible bonds must have amounts outstanding of at least $500 million and a term to maturity of between 1 to 5 years
  • At least 80% of total portfolio weight allocated to bonds issued by the following eligible banks: ANZ Bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank and Westpac (equally weighted)
  • Up to 20% of total portfolio weight allocated to bonds issued by the following eligible banks: AMP Bank, Bank of Queensland, Bendigo & Adelaide Bank, Macquarie Bank, Members Equity Bank and Suncorp-Metway

Advantages

  • Regular attractive income – income paid monthly, and expected to exceed income paid on cash and short-dated term deposits. Income expected to rise should interest rates rise and vice versa
  • Stability – historically Australian bank senior floating rate bonds have had a high level of capital stability, and limited capital variability during market declines
  • Diversification – floating rate bonds have historically exhibited low correlation to equities as well as defensive characteristics during market declines
  • Low cost – management costs of only 0.22% p.a.
  • Access – simple way to access a diversified portfolio of Australian bank senior floating rate bonds, inaccessible to most investors directly
  • Liquidity – available to trade on the ASX like any share, capital not locked up unlike term deposits

How to Invest

  • You can buy or sell units just like you’d buy or sell any share on the ASX
  • Fund requires no minimum investment

Chart

Past performance is not an indicator of future performance. Returns are calculated in Australian dollars using net asset value per unit at the start and end of the specified period and do not reflect brokerage or the bid ask spread that investors incur when buying and selling units on the ASX. Returns are after fund management costs, assume reinvestment of any distributions and do not take into account tax paid as an investor in the Fund. Returns for periods longer than one year are annualised. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown.
