The Fund focuses on generating a regular income while aiming to preserve capital and liquidity. Antares does this by actively managing a diverse portfolio of primarily high credit quality fixed income securities and cash, while carefully managing exposure to rising interest rates.

The Fund aims to provide regular income and a return (after fees) that exceeds the Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index over rolling three year-periods.

 

In an unpredictable and constantly changing world, Antares actively manages the Fund using a five step macro research process to identify economic and industry trends. This top down process is combined with analysis of the interest rate yield curve and bottom up credit research to manage risk and identify the most attractive securities that it believes will best achieve the Fund's return objective.

Derivatives may be used within the Fund to manage exposure to interest rates and credit markets, to hedge currency exposure (into Australian dollars), to improve returns, to reduce risk and to reduce transaction costs. Derivatives will not be used for gearing purposes.
