Market and portfolio review

The quarter saw rising interest rates and widening credit spreads as Central Banks aggressively dealt with higher than expected inflation. There were no manager changes over the quarter. The fund underperformed its benchmark by 0.19% for the quarter.

The Ardea Diversified Bond Fund was a big contributor due to its focus on high quality alpha sources and its benchmark replication strategy. The Ardea Global Alpha Fund was also a positive contributor to performance as market volatility picked up.

Janus Henderson subtracted value due to duration positioning and credit sector positioning. The IOOF Income Trust subtracted value due to credit sector selection. Western Asset Management subtracted value in its global total return strategy due to credit positioning.

Future investment strategy

The fund is maintaining a defensive position to both interest raters and credit. Whilst the fund overall is short duration, the fund has been taking the opportunity to reduce the short as yields have sold off.

The fund has also been re-allocating away from short duration benchmark managers to long duration benchmark managers. The fund is also shifting to a more defensive stance on credit. Whilst the fundamentals and technical for credit are strong, we feel with the economic outlook being uncertain, it is prudent to be more conservative on credit.
