Fund Net Assets $2.526 B (As at 30/09/20)

Within the risk constraints of investing in eligible short to intermediate-term, high credit quality instruments, the objective of the Trust is to maximise the return of a broadly diversified portfolio of domestic and global fixed interest and money market securities. The Trust is not managed with the objective of achieving a particular return relative to a benchmark index. However, to compare the performance of the Trust with a cash index, reference may be made to the Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index (AUD class units) or the Bloomberg NZBond Bank Bill Index (NZD class units). Investors should note that the index is referred to for comparison purposes only. The index is not intended to represent the current or targeted asset allocation of the Trust. The performance of the Trust may differ significantly from the index.

Performance shown represents past performance and is not indicative of future performance. Returns for periods shorter than one year are not annualised. Returns are net of fees and costs and assume income is reinvested and are gross of tax. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's units, when redeemed may be worth more or less than their original cost. The trust is not managed with the objective of achieving a particular return relative to a benchmark index. A reference index has been provided for contrasting purposes only and is not intended to represent the current or targeted asset allocation. Trust performance is likely to differ significantly from the reference index. An index is not available for direct purchase.
