Investment Approach

Perpetual aims to achieve the above objectives by: - managing the portfolio actively with respect to interest rates, swap and credit margins and managing the portfolio's sensitivity in these - diversifying the Fund amongst different securities issued by various borrowers - actively managing changes in market wide and security specific credit margins - identifying and investing in relative value within the universe of credit securities - utilising derivatives in conjunction with authorised investments for hedging, arbitrage, as a replacement for trading a physical security and for managing portfolio risks and exposures. The Fund does not directly gear for investment purposes. However, the Fund may borrow up to 10% to meet investor withdrawal requirements and the Fund may invests into the Perpetual Diversified Income Fund, which can gear up to 25% when gearing provides value to investors. Perpetual was appointed as Fund Manager effective 28 July 2014. The previous Fund Manager invested under a different investment strategy using a different investment approach. Therefore. performance information before 28 July 2014 is not directly comparable.
