Managed Income Portfolio Service

FIIG’s Managed Income Portfolio Service (“MIPS”) enables Financial Advisers to deliver their wholesale investor clients the key benefits of directly owning fixed income securities with the expertise of a professional investment management team.

The benefits of investing with MIPS


Bond Portfolio

Your client's portfolio is managed by fixed income experts focused entirely on creating value. Your administration is assisted by transparent reporting and streamlined data feeds.



Your client's benefit from a regular income (coupon) stream that can either be distributed to a nominated bank account or automatically reinvested.  



MIPS maximises your client's exposure diversity through FIIG’s unique DirectBond service enabling us  to offer bonds in $10,000 parcels. A $250,000 investment will, over time, hold 25 different bonds.



Your client's bonds are held in their own individually named account, they are not units in a trust.

How MIPS Works

Once you and your client have chosen an Investment Program, the MIPS Portfolio Management Team (PMT) will invest in fixed income assets according to the program’s mandate and replicate its model portfolio. The MIPS PMT will rebalance your client’s holdings in response to changes in markets and investment opportunities.

MIPS clients receive:

  • Regular income payments (coupons) either reinvested or paid into their nominated account.

  • The opportunity to subscribe to multiple Investment Programs.
  • The option to transfer approved assets ‘in-specie’ into their MIPS account.

  • Full transparency, with 24/7 online access to your client’s portfolio’s performance, valuations, transactions and income.
  • Monthly and annual statements of portfolio accounts, and a quarterly economic and fixed income market commentary from the MIPS PMT.

  • Invitation to you and your client to attend regular presentations by the MIPS PMT in each state office.

  • Custodial services.

  • Compliance monitoring, supervisory oversight and independent audit by PWC.

Conservative Investment Program

Conservative Income

Gross Yield to Maturity (YTM)

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

Gross Yield to Maturity (YTM)

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.

Conservative Investment Program

Income Plus

Gross Yield to Maturity (YTM)

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.
