The Trust is managed to invest in a broadly diversified portfolio of eligible intermediate term domestic and global fixed interest and money market securities. Within portfolio constraints, including controls on portfolio maturity, security maturity, credit quality and diversification, and adjusted to take into account certain environmental and sustainability impact and social considerations, the objective of the Trust is to maximise the return of the portfolio. 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 broad measure of market performance, reference may be made to the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond Index hedged to the Australian dollar (for AUD class units), or to the New Zealand dollar (for NZD class units). Investors should note that the index is referred to for comparison purposes only. 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 comparison purposes only and is not intended to represent the current or targeted asset allocation. Trust performance may differ significantly from the reference index. An index is not available for direct purchase.
