About the Fund:

Fixed Income’s flagship fund, the Challenger IM Credit Income Fund (the Fund) was launched in December 2017. The Fund maintains an investment grade credit risk profile, lending to a diverse mix of private and public borrowers.

The Fund aims to provide clients with capital stability and income on a regular basis accompanied by lower levels of volatility than traditional fixed income strategies. As a leader across multiple private lending markets since 2005, the Fixed Income team is able to unlock opportunities normally only available to banks and a small number of large and specialised institutions.
