Fixed interest securities or bonds play a vital role in a portfolio, providing an important source of capital stability, income, liquidity and diversification.
We offer a range of domestic and global fixed interest products for clients seeking consistent rates of returns and diversification in a balanced portfolio. We have pooled investment funds across all areas of the fixed interest spectrum, including government and corporate bonds, and also offer customised solutions depending on individual client risk return requirements.
For our global fixed interest offerings we partner with overseas specialists to access sovereign bonds, corporate bonds and securitised debt.

Philosophy and process
Our investment philosophy is based on the belief that fixed interest markets are not perfectly efficient, which provides opportunities to add value. Prices can overshoot valuations and this is where the real opportunity lies. Our philosophy is based on exploiting mispriced opportunities through a disciplined valuation approach and a repeatable process.
Through active management and specific strategies, such as interest rate management and sector and security selection, our experienced fixed interest team aims to generate better than average returns through innovative fixed interest products and our strong credit risk management skills. For our international fixed interest offerings we partner with overseas specialists to access sovereign bonds, corporate bonds and securitised debt on behalf of our clients.
