SMI delegates investment management to Coolabah Capital Investments (CCI), which has a proven track-record of delivering superior risk-adjusted returns in fixed income through bottom-up & top-down quantitative pricing and relentless qualitative due diligence. CCI runs over $2.3bn for mainly institutional clients.
Smarter Money Investments Pty Ltd (SMI) delegates all investment management responsibilities to Coolabah Capital Investments (CCI), which is a leading independent, active fixed-income manager established in 2011 with more than $2.3bn in FUM for mainly institutional clients.
CCI's comparative advantages are in active cash management, active bond selection, top-down and bottom-up quantitative asset pricing and related research, qualitative due diligence, and minimising credit and interest rate duration risks.
CCI believes that there is a significant role for liquid active cash and low duration fixed-interest (credit) to play in both individual and institutional portfolios. This is particularly true in a world where interest rates are near record lows and duration risks have elevated to all-time highs.
CC's four portfolio managers have decades of fixed-interest trading and research experience and are augmented by an institutional-sized research capability comprising eight analysts that focus on quant research, credit research, and intensive qualitative due diligence. The team's investment philosophy fuses both bottom-up and top-down quantitative valuation methods with intensive qualitative due diligence.
CCI currently runs 10 different fixed-income strategies for mainly institutional customers. In 2016 SMI was a finalist for Money Management/Lonsec’s “emerging fund manager of the year” award. SMI's first active short-term fixed-interest solution, called the Smarter Money Fund (Active Cash strategy) (SMAC), was launched in February 2012. SMI's second active credit solution, called the Smarter Money Higher Income (SMHI) strategy, was publicly launched on 1 October 2014. SMI's third strategy, called the Long Short Credit Fund, was launched on 1 September 2017, and is an absolute return, fixed-income hedge fund.
