The Fund's strategy invests across a broad array of credit sectors, with the focus on sub-IG, aiming to outperform cash rate by 4-5% p.a. over the cycle. It has been designed to align the portfolio with the Paris Climate Agreement, delivering a portfolio with net zero emissions by 2050.  Interim carbon reduction targets have been set for 2025.
