BT Investment Management fixed interest fund awarded “Rising Star”
The BT Pure Alpha Fixed Income Fund has been recognised as the winner of the “Rising Star” award, adjudged by Lonsec.
The Lonsec Awards use a mix of qualitative and quantitative measures to identify high achieving funds managers and investment products that have stood out amongst their industry peers.
The Rising Star Award winner is chosen out of more than 800 funds to identify recently launched products which are “demonstrating industry best practice and bringing quality product to the retail market.”
In the period to 31 August 2015, the BT Pure Alpha Fixed Income Fund, managed by BT Investment Management, beat its benchmark by 5.72% over a 1 year period and by 1.14% since inception*.
The Fund is intended for investors who want the potential for positive returns across a range of market conditions, with a low correlation to equity and bond markets. The Fund aims to generate its returns by investing in fixed interest, credit and foreign exchange markets in Australia and globally.
Vimal Gor, Head of Income Strategies and Fund Manager of the BT Pure Alpha Fixed Income Fund, said he was gratified that the Fund has received the Rising Star award.
“In highly volatile markets the Fund has benefited from its go-anywhere philosophy, backed by a strong fund structure and a resource-rich research base.”
Earlier in the year BTIM was awarded the Australian Fixed Income Fund Manager of the Year by Money Management/ Lonsec.
The BT Pure Alpha Fixed Income Fund is available through Asgard and BT Wrap.
