NZ PIE Strategies

CCI offers New Zealand based investors access to the Australian and global fixed income market through a Short Term Income and Long-Short Strategy. These solutions target returns, after fees and before tax, between 1.5% to 3%, and 4% to 6% above the RBNZ cash rate.

Both strategies are portfolio investment entities (PIE). This is a New Zealand managed fund that offers investors special tax rules that apply to the income earned by the Fund. The PIE rules mean that investors pay tax on their own tax rate (the Prescribed Investor Rate or PIR), which is usually slightly lower than their income tax rate. Refer to the Product Disclosure Statement for more information.

Coolabah Short Term Income PIE Fund

Targets RBNZ Cash Plus 1.5% to 3.0% pa After Fees and Before Taxes

The Coolabah Short Term Income PIE Fund is a zero duration, short-term fixed-interest investment solution that targets returns that outperform the RBNZ cash rate by 1.5% – 3.0% per annum after all fees and before tax, over rolling 12 month periods.

This strategy gains exposure to an actively managed portfolio of Australian cash securities and investment-grade floating-rate notes with a target dollar-weighted average credit rating in the “A” band hedged to NZ dollars. It does not invest in fixed-rate bonds (unless interest rate risk is swapped out) or equities.

The portfolio managers add value through active asset-selection with materially lower volatility and interest rate duration risk than traditional fixed interest funds.

Coolabah Long-Short Credit PIE Fund

Targets RBNZ Cash Plus 4.0% to 6.0% pa After Fees and Before Taxes

The Coolabah Long-Short Credit PIE Fund provides investors with exposure to an absolute return fixed-income strategy focused on exploiting long and short mispricings in credit markets.

The strategy targets returns above the RBNZ cash rate plus 4% to 6% pa after all fees and before tax over rolling 3 year periods . It targets volatility of less than 5% pa.

This strategy offers investor exposure primarily to senior and subordinated bonds, hybrids and derivatives, hedged to NZ dollars. The Coolabah Long-Short Credit PIE Fund targets holding the majority of its portfolio in investment-grade quality debt securities.

The strategy aims to generate high absolute returns that have low-to-no correlation with equities, fixed-rate bonds and property markets, from relatively low risk and liquid investments identified through the portfolio managers’ proven active asset-selection process. The strategy aims to reliably distribute strong quarterly income.

The portfolio managers seek to generate these returns by taking “long” or “short” positions in relation to assets which they consider are trading below or above fair value. The goal is to generate significant risk-adjusted returns, or “alpha”. The ability to go long or short, either directly or through using derivatives, means it can profit from bond price rises and price falls. Going long or short can also result in the strategy being leveraged.
