|Investment return objective||To provide a total return, before costs and tax, higher than the Fund’s benchmark over the medium term by providing exposure to a diversified portfolio of predominantly fixed income securities denominated in foreign currencies and largely hedged into Australian dollars.|
|Investment strategy||The Fund invests predominantly in debt securities issued by supranationals, international governments, quasi-governments, agencies and corporates as well as structured credit securities including mortgage and asset backed securities. The Fund may also be exposed to low grade or unrated debt securities, emerging markets and currency to a limited extent. The Fund promotes a reduction in carbon footprint exposure, mainly by excluding companies identified as having a relatively high exposure to carbon-intensive thermal coal activities. The Fund also invests in corporations which follow good governance practices by international standards, including company responsibility, company management and the severity of impacts on stakeholders and/or the environment. Derivatives may be used to obtain or reduce exposure to securities and markets, to implement investment strategies and to manage risk. Foreign currency exposures are largely hedged back to Australian dollars, apart from those foreign currency exposures which are utilised to generate excess returns from active currency management. For further information on how the Fund promotes a reduction in carbon footprint exposure and good governance practices – refer to the ESG considerations section in the Additional Information Booklet.|
