About the option

The Fixed Interest option invests in a diversified portfolio of debt securities, mainly fixed-rate bonds issued by Australian and overseas governments and companies, mortgage-backed securities and cash.

The investment managers who manage the assets in the Fixed Interest option include specialist credit managers and other managers mainly focused on managing sector and interest rate exposures.

This option is suitable for members seeking long-term capital security, while earning a rate of return above that of bank bills or from a cash management trust.

What are the option’s objectives?

  • To outperform the return of a mix of the Australian and overseas bond markets (as measured by a benchmark consisting of the Bloomberg AusBond Composite Bond Index and the Barclays Capital Global Aggregate Index [hedged]).
  • To achieve returns after tax and fees that exceed the inflation rate (as measured by the CPI) by at least 0.5% per year.^
