Investment strategy and approach

To ensure the best opportunity to meet the model portfolio’s objectives, ACBC selects a portfolio of XTBs using a 2-stage quantitative process, with a qualitative overlay.

Quantitative process

Stage 1: Selection

Define the investment universe of  securities using the following criteria:

  • Rank from highest yield to maturity
  • Investment grade credit only¬Ļ
  • Weighting parameters (issuer, security, sector¬≤)
  • Available liquidity

¬Ļ At the time of¬†establishment
² As defined by GICS Sub Industry

Stage 2: Application

Apply a set of rules to select an optimal XTB high yield model portfolio.

Qualitative overlay

Adjustments may be made to the portfolio. These adjustments may be made to reflect market conditions, despite the rules being satisfied.

The general approach is to hold securities to maturity.  However, model portfolio changes may be made in response to:

  • An increase in the yield to maturity, by adding¬†securities
  • An increase in the universe of available securities
  • Improvement to the portfolio, by switching securities

Designed for investors who …

  • Seek a transparent and capital-stable fixed income model portfolio that offers a regular and predictable income stream
  • Are looking for lower risk than equities and hybrids and higher returns than ‚Äėcash-like‚Äô investments
