There is a whole sect of the financial markets dedicated to guessing which way interest rates will go month-to-month. But at Challenger Investment Management, we believe that is not the best way to provide solid, recurring incomes to our investors. We believe the best way is to hand pick quality assets, issued by quality companies that we know and trust.
The Challenger IM Credit Income Fund now pays a healthy 6.7% running yield to maturity, supported by a range of these high-quality public and private credit assets.
Some of the companies that participate in our funds are Australia’s most recognisable – from Harris Farm Markets to myob and Ingham’s.
In addition, the fund is backed by one of Bridge Street’s most experienced buy-side firms. Our parent firm, Challenger, is an ASX-listed business with nearly $100 billion in assets under management.
In this Fund in Focus, I’ll take you through the Challenger Credit Income Fund and show you why private credit is a great diversification option for today’s income investor.
