MIPS programs

The minimum investment amount for MIPS is $250,000 for each investment program, or $5m for a Customised Investment Program.

Conservative Income Investment Program

Conservative Income Investment Program - regular income with exposure to investment grade credit only.

Conservative Income invests in investment grade senior and subordinated bonds. Longer dated bonds form a key part of portfolios generating yield from credit and interest rates. The mix of holdings of fixed and floating rate bonds will shift through the interest rate cycle.  

Core Income Investment Program

Core Income Investment Program - regular income investing in senior debt only

Portfolios are predominantly exposed to investment grade senior bonds with a small allocation to unrated bonds. Exposure is to medium to longer tenor maturity profiles, facilitating higher yield generation. The mix of holdings of fixed and floating rate bonds will shift through the interest rate cycle.

Income Plus Investment Program

Income Plus Investment Program - higher income with moderate risk

Income Plus has a broader mandate to invest across the capital structure, senior through to subordinated bonds, and across the credit spectrum to include investment and non-investment grade companies. The allocation to select non-investment grade credits based on credit strength and subordinated bonds generates portfolio yield. The credit exposure and mix of rated and unrated bonds will shift through the credit cycle.

Inflation-Linked Income Investment Program

Inflation-Linked  Income Investment Program - income linked to inflation to protect purchasing power.

Inflation Linked invests in pure inflation-linked bonds, CIBs and ILBs, issued by governments, semis and corporates and in FRNs that are highly correlated to inflation. FRNs are included to generate excess yield via credit exposure. The exposure to longer and shorter maturity ILBs will vary through the inflation cycle.

Customised Investment Program

Customised Investment Program - tailored investments of $5m

MIPS offers the ability to create a bespoke fixed income portfolio based on your key investment objectives including liquidity, credit, duration, diversification and Ethical, Social & Governance (ESG) position.
