About this fund

The Corporate Bond Fund is suited to investors who seek an enhanced return to bank term deposits on average over medium term periods, whilst accepting a different risk and allowing for some short term movements up and down. We aim to achieve this by investing entirely in income assets, such as corporate bonds or other fixed interest securities issued by New Zealand and Global companies.
