OVERVIEW

Fund Objective

CRED aims to track the performance of an index (before fees and expenses) that provides intelligent exposure to a portfolio of senior, fixed-rate, investment grade Australian corporate bonds.

Fund Strategy

The Fund’s strategy will preference securities offering superior expected excess returns over Australian government bonds. Up to 50 bonds are selected, with eligible bonds requiring amounts outstanding of >$250m and a term to maturity of between 5.25 to 10.25 years.

Benefits of CRED

Attractive income paid monthly

Income is paid monthly at a rate expected to be higher than term deposits, government and composite bond exposures.

Diversification & defence

Australian corporate bonds historically have tended to rise when Australian shares have fallen, providing potential diversification and defensive benefits for portfolios.

Invest in bonds intelligently

CRED selects bonds based on expected returns rather than debt outstanding, seeking to avoid the shortcomings of traditional debt-weighted indices and provide higher returns.

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.

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.
