Investment Solutions Enhanced Inc comment - Mar 16

2016/06/28 00:00:00
The portfolio ended behind the benchmark for the quarter, with all the managers underperforming.
The best-performing asset class within the constraints of this portfolio was property, which returned 10.10%. Nominal bonds returned 6.3% -- comfortably higher than inflation-linked bonds (1.99%) and slightly higher than cash (1.93%) for the quarter.
All the managers underperformed due to short duration in a period of falling yields. Investec marginally underperformed the benchmark despite having reasonable exposure to property, which contributed to performance. Atlantic also ended behind due to short duration. Prescient ended behind for the quarter due to being underweight property. However, yield enhancement through credit-linked notes and short-dated bank paper contributed to performance.
  • Fund focus and objective  
The Enhanced Income portfolio seeks to provide a higher level of income capital growth than a traditional income portfolio and money market portfolio. This is done through the use of diverse sources of income with a high emphasis on capital preservation. The portfolio aims to out perform the All Bond Index (BEASSA ALBI 1-3yrs) split index and the median of peers in this category by investing in bonds, fixed deposits, other money market instruments, listed debentures, preference shares of an income nature and listed property shares. The portfolio has a flexible maturity profile instead of a defined modified duration limit.
