For the month of August 2022

Both Western and Janus Henderson maintained their overweight to strong credits over the June quarter with the widening in spreads causing both managers to subtract value from this position. Janus Henderson's long duration position over the quarter also subtracted value from the portfolio.

Future investment strategy

For the month of August 2022

The Bloomberg AusBond Composite 0+ Yr Index returned - 10.51% for the year ended 30 June 2022. Both managers underperformed the benchmark over this period as the widening in credit spreads hit both managers.
