It’s a smart way to diversify

Experienced investors appreciate the need to diversify their portfolio, but it isn’t enough to just add Corporate Bonds to the mix - you still need to diversify within your Corporate Bond portfolio - and this diversification needs to be in line with your appetite for risk and return.

With bonds available from companies in industries as varied as banking, construction, infrastructure, insurance, transport, airlines, retailing and more, it’s easy to ensure diversification for reduced capital risk.

Bonds are a great way to generate a reliable cash flow

When investing funds generated from years of hard work, many investors look for options that give them strong capital protection, while also generating a reliable, healthy income.

But deposit accounts barely keep up with inflation and shares can experience a capital wipe-out in just days. That’s why more and more smart investors are looking to Corporate Bonds.

Earn a better return

Australian bonds have proven to deliver better returns than cash or International shares over the last 20 years. And all without as much risk. If you’re looking for strong returns, bonds are a great way to achieve your aims.

Corporate Bonds generally pay a higher income return than cash and term deposits.
