ASFA Briefing

ASFA Briefing: Credit as an Asset Class

LIVE STREAM: 13 October 2020, 11.00am – 12.15pm AEDT

Registrations close 3.00pm Monday 12 October.


Credit could play a very important role in superannuation portfolios yet allocations to this broad and diverse asset class remain relatively small. Are returns to fund members worse off as a result?

Gain a better insight into the opportunities this widely misunderstood asset class presents at the upcoming ASFA Briefing: Credit as an asset class.

Packed with real-world case studies and practical insights from leading credit authorities, this briefing is designed to provide superannuation trustees, executives and investment practitioners with:

  • a clearer understanding of what credit is and its relevance for superannuation
  • how credit has evolved in Australia since the 2008 crisis
  • how it behaves from a risk/return perspective
  • the different ways it can be used within superannuation portfolios
  • tips on overcoming the challenges of investing in credit, such as its interplay with liquidity.
