Macquarie Income Opportunities Fund

Using an active and flexible investment approach that seeks to capitalise on opportunities in local and global fixed income markets, the Macquarie Income Opportunities Fund (Fund) aims to deliver attractive long-term returns and monthly income while preserving capital and managing liquidity risk.

The Fund is found upon three key pillars:
- Clear philosophy
- Flexible strategy
- Income

Clear philosophy: focus on preserving capital and managing liquidity
The Fund is backed by a clear and simple investment philosophy of preserving capital and managing liquidity risk. This focus is the result of years of extensive in-house research supporting our investment processes, and recognising we are managing the defensive part of investors’ portfolios.

Consistent with our bias for capital preservation, we focus on active management in seeking to avoid negative surprises, and uphold a strong respect for liquidity risk which directly influences all of our investment decisions.

Flexible strategy: potential for attractive returns across different market conditions
Our flexible investment approach allows us to adapt to prevailing market conditions, preserving capital in times of stress and seeking to capitalise on opportunities when value is on offer.

This time-tested approach has delivered investors steady long-term returns across different market conditions. This has been the case even in times when credit and liquidity stress have been high; the times we believe are most important in demonstrating the value of quality fixed income management.

Income: potential for monthly distributions, and to outperform cash
The Fund aims to distribute income on a monthly basis. Since inception of the Fund almost 15 years ago, the Fund has delivered investors an unbroken history of monthly income distributions, and excess long-term returns above cash across different market conditions.1
