About the Fund

The Challenger IM Multi-Sector Private Lending Fund is a floating rate multi-sector credit strategy focused on private lending opportunities primarily in Australia and New Zealand. The Fund aims to generate a consistent, high level of income by harvesting the illiquidity premium that exists between the public and private lending markets. By keeping spread duration low and focusing on floating rate loans, the Fund aims to have a low correlation to interest rates and broader equity markets. The Fund is available to institutional and wholesale clients (as defined in the Corporations Act 2001) only.

Diversification within the broader fixed income asset class in comparison to more traditional fixed income and equity securities.
Actively seeking to take advantage of the illiquidity premiums found in private lending markets offering attractive risk reward.
Rigorous oversight and governance ensure the Fund is managed in a stable environment across extensive operational, legal and finance platforms.
