BNP Paribas BnP V350

The Portfolio is actively managed and is diversified across a broad range of assets from bond markets globally to money market instruments and currencies. It is designed to deliver consistent returns throughout the investment cycle while remaining within strict risk parameters.

The  investment philosophy adopted for managing fixed income portfolios consists of five components:

  • Systematic use of multiple alpha strategies delivers consistent returns
  • Blending qualitative analysis and quantitative models yield superior results
  • Specialized, accountable and incentivized managers make better decisions
  • Management of risk ranks hand-in-hand with the search for alpha
  • Constant innovation keeps them ahead of the curve.

The Manager implements a flexible fixed income strategy via systematic use of multiple alpha strategies, targeting long-term positive returns managed to a target risk; they deliver an unconstrained approach that uses derivatives and flexible cash limits to mitigate market volatility.  Within given risk parameters, they seek to add value through both an active allocation across global fixed income asset classes and stock selection within each asset class.

The objective of the Portfolio is to seek to generate positive absolute returns consistent with a target volatility of 350 basis points.  The benchmark index for the Portfolio is the Bloomberg Ausbond Bank Bill Index (Code: BAUBIL) in AUD – Unhedged.
