Millinium Capital has confirmed its reputation as the rising star of Australian funds management after its fixed income portfolio received Morningstar’s top star rating. —
Millinium’s Fixed Income Mandate received a 5-star rating effective 31st October 2014, the highest possible, for its Fixed Income Mandate. Three of Millinium’s four portfolios have now received a 5-star rating in either their wholesale or retail versions.
The Australian Equities Mandate (for wholesale investors), and the MSF Multi-Strategy Income Option (for retail investors) received five-star ratings which remain effective as of 31st October 2014.
Morningstar’s October 2014 institutional sector survey for the Australia SA Bonds category which consists of 20 funds, shows Millinium’s Fixed Income Mandate (for wholesale investors) as the 1st ranked performer over one, two and three years. Furthermore, it was a clear leader over three years, outperforming the next-ranked fund by an annualised 5.5 percentage points over those three years.
Millinium chief investment officer, Mark Phillips said the Fixed Income Mandate focused on providing absolute returns and was not managed against a benchmark, reflecting Millinium’s strong conviction in its investment ideas and determination to provide consistent returns to investors.
“We believe that a manager that is focused on making positive returns and has the freedom and dexterity to seek quality assets wherever they are available can outperform,” Mr Phillips said. “I think our performance to date bears that out.”
The fixed income portfolio is positioned in a relatively small number of quality bonds, given Millinium’s belief that the US Federal Reserve’s ultra-low interest rate policy is leading to an increasing under-pricing of risk and raising the threat of widespread credit defaults.
