The Fund may suit investors looking to diversify a portfolio that is already weighted to growth-focussed assets, such as shares and property. The Fund predominantly invests in a combination of:

  • highly-rated longer-maturity bonds, including bonds issued by governments, to provide diversification of returns from growth assets, and
  • shorter-maturity corporate bonds that Antares believes will enhance the Fund's returns while managing risk.

The Fund aims to outperform the Bloomberg AusBond Australian All Maturities Composite Bond Index over rolling three year periods, after deducting Management fees.
