We believe that success is about understanding our clients’ needs, and delivering to those needs. We recognise there’s been a fundamental change in markets over the last few years. Because of this, the ability to preserve capital and provide a steady income stream has become a more important goal than ever for many investors, particularly those who are entering or already in retirement.
We believe that our ‘true to label’ corporate bond fund provides a more secure future for those investors who are looking for capital stability and a regular income from their investments.
The Fund's risk level is based on the estimated number of negative annual returns for the Fund over any 20 year period and is not a complete assessment of the risks of investing in the Fund. For instance it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than an investor may require to meet their objectives. Consequently, before choosing to invest or reinvest in the Fund, you should read the Fund's PDS and incorporated information and consider factors such as the likely investment return, the risks of investing and your investment time frame. Information about the methodology used for calculating the risk level is available here.

*Refers to on-platform Class A. Estimated yield is based on the unit price at the start of the period. It is important to note that the final annualised distribution yield will not be known until the end of the financial year, that the distribution yield estimate isn’t guaranteed, and that it may change over the period due to market movements in the Fund unit prices. We base our estimate on assumptions set out in this paragraph, and you should be aware that if facts differ from our assumptions, the final distribution yield may differ from the estimate. The estimate is based on the amount of income we expect to receive into the Fund over the period from 1 January 2017 to 30 June 2017, based on the current investments held by the Fund, the level of coupons, maturity payments and pre-payments expected to be earned from investments held in the Fund. If the companies whose securities we hold in the Fund do not pay the coupons, maturity payments or prepayments they have forecast, or if the portfolio changes materially over the period, this may impact on our estimated distribution yield.
 Distributions for AMP Capital Corporate Bond Fund are preannounced twelve months in advance.
