Floating-Rate Opportunities 

Capital stability with current yields up to or higher than most short-dated TDs*

Recent falls in term deposit rates following the RBA rate cut has pushed investors to look for alternative forms of capital stable income. Floating rate investment-grade senior bonds are popular in the current environment as clients are not locked in for a specific term and the capital value is not generally affected by interest rate movements. The highest yielding floating-rate XTB is the AMP YTMF17 which matures in 2021, current yield is 2.76%. (Source XTB as at 17 June 2019).
* TDs may enjoy the benefit of protection under the Financial Claims Scheme. 


Take A Hike Running Yield

A look back at one of our most popular articles

Many equity investors are familiar with ‘Dividend Yield’ and would most likely consider this when buying shares. The same concept exists for bonds - it’s called ‘Running Yield’. They’re both similar in concept – how much cash flow (dividend or coupon) am I going to get back for every dollar I invest? 

We look at Running Yield and compare it to Yield to Maturity to determine which is the 'better' measure for potential bond investors to consider. 


Australia: Global Outlier For Asset Allocation

Read our article, first featured in ASX's Investor Update

Among OECD countries, Australians are actually bottom of the pile in terms of portfolio allocation to bonds. Every single other OECD country has a more balanced allocation between shares and bonds. 

Investment-grade bonds are a defensive asset. They offer stability and diversification in a portfolio. When the share market seems to be going up and up, it’s easy to overlook the cushioning effect of a solid fixed income foundation. But, in volatile times it’s increasingly important to ensure you protect the wealth you’ve built up for your clients.
