OUR APPROACH TO INVESTING

We MANAGE OVER A$3.2 BILLION ON BEHALF OF Superannuation Funds, Large Managed Accounts and Retail Investors.

As at 15 April 2019

Our investment philosophy is centred on duration management and targeted security bond selection (across and within sub-sectors) which we strongly believe can drive returns over appropriate time horizons. Economic fundamentals, monetary policies and politics, and bond supply/flow implications are critical drivers of ongoing returns, thus we believe skilled active management can help to protect investments on the downside and participate on the upside, over time.
