AMP Capital Global Short Duration Fund

How the Fund works

The Global Short Duration Fund aims to provide you with access to a well-diversified portfolio of high quality global fixed income securities. It invests in securities with a shorter average duration than traditional fixed income funds. The fund takes advantage of global opportunities focusing on active positions on secular trends as opposed to short term aberrations in interest rates. PIMCO Australia Pty Limited*, a global investment management firm, has been appointed as the current investment manager of the Fund.

* From 30 November 2021, the fund’s strategy will be changing. PIMCO Australia Pty Limited will no longer be the investment managerfor the fund and the fund’s exposure to international fixed interest will be achieved through an investment in the Macquarie GlobalIncome Opportunities Fund, a fund managed by Macquarie Asset Management Ltd and which invests in a wide range of Australasianand global investment grade floating and fixed rate instruments, asset-backed securities, and cash. Although the Macquarie GlobalIncome Opportunities Fund has a similar investment approach to that employed by PIMCO Pty Limited, it does have a higher returntarget and therefore a higher risk profile. Based on the returns data for the Macquarie Global Income Opportunities Fund for the lastfive years, the risk indicator would be 3.
