Coolabah’s Floating-Rate High Yield Strategy

A portfolio of investment grade “Floating-Rate Notes” with enhanced yields.

Coolabah Floating-Rate High Yield Fund

INVESTMENT GRADE, HIGH YIELDING, SHORT DURATION STRATEGY

Overview

The Coolabah Floating-Rate High Yield Fund (YLDX) focuses on generating higher income than other traditional fixed income investments by investing in a portfolio of investment-grade Australian Floating-Rate Notes (FRNs) with enhanced yields.

Investments

The Fund currently invests in a portfolio of cash securities and floating-rate, Australian bank and insurer issued senior and Tier 2 bonds with an average rating of “A-”. It has the capacity to invest in government bonds and corporate bonds.

In contrast to fixed-rate bonds, FRNs pay a variable-rate of interest that resets monthly or quarterly and  moves up and down with changes in a recognised reference interest rate. In Australia, FRNs generally track the returns of the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA’s) cash rate via a benchmark proxy called the quarterly Bank Bill Swap Rate (BBSW) plus an additional credit spread, or interest rate margin above BBSW.

Unlike a fixed-rate bond, a FRN has very low interest rate risk given the interest paid by an FRN will be highly correlated with moves in the RBA cash rate.

Disclaimer: The yield displayed for the Coolabah Floating-Rate High Yield Fund and the bonds is the annual running after management costs as of 31 July 2023. The yields shown changes daily and may be different on the day you invest. All investments carry risks, including that the value of investments may vary, future returns may differ from past returns, and that your capital is not guaranteed. The Fund has a different risk profile to the other comparisons, including, amongst other things, that it invests in bonds, not hybrids or equities, and that it uses leverage, which means that both gains and losses may be amplified. To understand the Fund’s risks better, please refer to the Product Disclosure Statement.

Coolabah applies bottom-up and top-down fundamental analysis of both issuers of the securities and the credit quality and structural features of the securities themselves to build a portfolio of Australian cash and debt investments that offer attractive yields whilst minimising the risk of capital loss.

The Fund does not invest in fixed-rate bonds, hybrid securities, equities or property.

The Fund is permitted to use leverage.
