Sustainable impact and secure returns
Investing in our first sustainability bond
As well as earning good returns for our members, we’re committed to investing responsibly, so we have a positive and sustainable impact on the community.
We recently secured a $250 million cornerstone investment in the inaugural NSW Treasury Corporation 2025 Sustainability Bond (the Bond). It’s part of the NSW Sustainability Bond Programme, which generates funding to help build and improve infrastructure, and make communities more liveable.
How do you benefit?
A Treasury Bond gives exposure to a high quality, reliable income investment that generates a consistent stream of income for the Australian Fixed Income portfolio in the pre-mixed funds. At the same time, the Bond is used to invest in sustainable projects that support the communities of our members.
Investing in the future
The funds raised by the NSW state government through the sale of the Bond will be invested in the following green and social projects.
Five water projects with Sydney Water, which will help contribute to sustainable water and waste water management. Projects will include stormwater system infrastructure and the stabilisation of creeks with vegetation and plants.
Access improvements for people with a disability, limited mobility and parents with prams at 57 train stations and 12 ferry wharves across NSW.
Over $500m for school projects in nine new schools and 19 school upgrades to provide up to 15,000 additional school places.
