AB picks up Prime Super mandate

Reporter

Industry fund Prime Super has awarded AllianceBernstein (AB) a $140 million mandate to manage a short-duration global credit portfolio.

According to a statement, the portfolio is designed to protect Prime Super members’ fixed-income allocations in a volatile global interest-rate environment, in which there is an unusually wide dispersion between various countries in terms of their monetary policy settings and outlook.

“We are looking for a degree of protection from this uncertainty by investing in a portfolio of traditional fixed-income assets with relatively little duration, or exposure to interest-rate risk, but which has at the same time the potential for returns through a modest exposure to credit,” Prime Super chief executive Lachlan Baird said.

Commenting on the mandate win, AB chief executive for Australia, Jen Driscoll, said: "We are delighted to welcome Prime Super as a client and look forward to partnering with them in helping them to meet their members’ investment objectives."
