|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.
|The Fund invests predominantly in debt securities issued by supranationals, international governments, quasi-governments, agencies and corporates, and structured credit securities (including mortgage and asset backed securities). The Fund may also invest in low grade, unrated or emerging markets debt securities, and currency to a limited extent. The Fund employs certain investment exclusions. The Fund also targets a reduction in Carbon Footprint compared to the Benchmark, in respect of the Corporate Debt portion of the debt securities it holds. Derivatives may be used by the Fund to obtain or reduce exposure to securities and markets, to implement investment strategies and to manage risks. Foreign currency exposures are largely hedged back to Australian dollars, apart from those foreign currency exposures that are used to generate excess returns from active currency management. For further information on how the Fund seeks to achieve a reduction in Carbon Footprint and the investment exclusions employed by the Fund, refer to ESG considerations in the ‘How we invest your money’ section of the Additional Information Booklet.
