Perpetual Dynamic Fixed Income Fund

The Dynamic Fixed Income Fund is a diversified portfolio of quality fixed income investments. The Fund is an absolute return fund that seeks to provide investors with a regular income and consistent returns.

The Fund actively invests in fixed and floating rate, credit and government securities. We seek to take advantage of credit and interest rate opportunities and believe that this flexibility can help the Fund achieve stable returns.

The Fund has a strategic interest rate risk (duration) exposure. We seek to make tactical adjustments to duration risk to reflect our interest rate views. We believe that tactical shifts to duration tend to be most effective during periods of extreme market movement.

The Fund is actively managed by an experienced team that has invested together for over a decade, using an investment approach that seeks to identify quality credit investments while actively managing duration.

Features and Benefits

  • Actively managed credit risk

    We actively manage credit risk by picking the most attractive company debt. Our analysis takes into consideration liquidity premium, maturity, ratings and relative valuations.


    We set a strategic duration level, which is lower than most traditional bond benchmarks, which helps capital stability. We actively manage duration around the strategic level.

  • Good quality investments

    The Fund invests mainly in investment-grade assets. Even during periods of market stress, our investments typically remain tradeable, providing liquidity and regular distributions to investors.


    We will only take on risk when we expect it will be rewarded and we actively screen out sources of risk that could lead to a loss. Risk management drives every decision we make.


All investments carry risk. While it is not possible to identify every risk relevant to your investment, we have provided details of the risks that may affect your investment in the relevant product disclosure statement (PDS) or offer document.

You can find PDSs and other documents in our resources section. The relevant PDS, offer documents and forms can also be found in the sections below:
