About the BondAdviser Income Plus Portfolio

The BondAdviser Fixed Income Model Portfolios were developed in response to client query and limited understanding of the risks and required returns associated with debt and hybrid securities.

BondAdviser recognise that advisers do not always have sufficient time to manage credit and interest rate risk and we provide a solution which prudently manages these risks through our research and portfolio construction capacity.

Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) offer investors easy access to expert knowledge in a transparent, practical, and cost-effective manner, while also allowing full ownership of the underlying instruments.
