Our conservative management approach aims to preserve and protect your investment, and is reinforced by State Street Global Advisors’ dedicated credit research team, one of the largest and most experienced in the industry.

We believe these two fundamentals work together to provide an attractive enhanced cash return. The investment process is underpinned by our experienced global credit research team who use a broad range of tools to conduct fundamental credit research.
The Australia-based portfolio managers are responsible for the investment strategy and portfolio construction. The portfolio managers make relative value trading decisions and evaluate the size of investments relative to market liquidity to minimise market impact. This allows the Fund to add value in a conservative manner whilst managing the risks.
