BondAdviser’s background

  • Collective experience spanning over 75+ years in financial markets
  • $500+ million in funds under the group’s advice
  • Consistent above benchmark performance whilst maintaining a strong preference towards preserving capital

Fixed Income and Credit Investments come in many different shapes and sizes, though, the common theme within the space is the complexity of the underlying components which make up the investment itself.

Increasingly, we are seeing an uptick of offerings within the asset classes which provide specialised investments opportunities via exposure to the commercial real estate (CRE) debt space and other credit portfolios with investments spanning across several credit market segments, borrowers and industries. As a thought leader in the space BondAdviser in conjunction with EY, and the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) jointly published the inaugural Australian Private Credit Introductory Guide.

The appointment of BondAdviser as Prime’s research partner will allow us to leverage their extensive knowledge and deep relationships to gain high quality investment opportunities and outcomes for clients.

On behalf of the Prime Investment Committee and Research Team (listed below) I’d like to welcome the BondAdviser Team and Nicholas and we look forward to their contribution;

  • Mark Johnson (Chair of Committee & Partner – Wealth Management)
  • Marcus Bogdan (Australian Equities Specialist)
  • Guy Silbert (Investment Manager), and
  • Jai Rodrigo (Dealer and Research Assistant)
