The Australian Guide to Fixed Income

Protect your wealth and generate a reliable cash flow

When investing funds generated from years of hard work, many investors look for options that give them capital stability, while also generating a reliable 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 investors are turning to investment grade, Government and Corporate Bonds.

Delivering income certainty throughout the year

Because a bond is a loan on fixed terms, you can expect regular and consistent income payments at set intervals during the year.

The bond’s performance is not tied to a company’s share price, so you can relax and focus on other things, rather than worrying about what the share market is doing.

This makes bonds a great investment when looking for a more secure option to directly investing in these companies through shares.

It’s a smart way to diversify

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.

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

* The ANZ and WBC securities are pre-Basel 3 legacy subordinated bonds, and are perpetual (have no maturity). They cease to contribute to the bank’s regulatory capital from January 2022 and as such may be called after that date. If this occurs at par (100) then the yield to the call is significantly higher than the yield shown in the portfolio which assumes no call.
