Melbourne, 5 May 2017 – Australia Ratings has withdrawn its credit rating of ‘BBB’ to the Fund’s units. A ‘BBB’ rating indicates a fixed income portfolio has a moderate level of protection against loss arising from credit risk.

Australia Ratings has also withdrawn its Product Complexity Indicator (PCI) of ‘YELLOW” which indicates that the terms and conditions of an investment represents a complex type of investment. The rating and PCI have been withdrawn at the request of the manager of the Mason Stevens Credit Fund.

Mason Stevens Credit Fund was launched in 2013 and aims to generate a return of 3.5% above the Cash Rate by investing in securities that generate both income and yield. The units provide investors with a quarterly distribution of income and a return of principal via a redemption request.
