The Australian Corporate Bond Company (ACBC) has announced the launch of a new website specifically aimed at advisers and investors.
The company said the new website contained enhanced features and tools to help advisers and investors calculate the potential outcomes of investing in exchange-traded bond units (XTBs).
XTBs are an Australian Securities Exchange (ASX)-traded product that provide investors with access to corporate bond returns with each XTB providing access to the returns of an individual underlying senior corporate bond, with no minimum investment amount.
According to ACBC, the new website offers two portals tailored to advisers and investors and features a two-way yield and price calculator covering both fixed and floating rate bonds, plus a cash flow tool enabling users to build a portfolio of up to 10 XTBs and visualise the timeline of coupon payments during the life of their investment.
Commenting on the product, ACBC chief executive and co-founder, Richard Murphy, claimed the new tools offered advisers and investors an easy and interactive way to learn more about XTBs and how corporate bond exposure could benefit their investment or superannuation portfolios.
"Since launching in May last year, XTBs have attracted growing interest from both investors and advisers and we've been pleased to see strong traffic across our new investment tools.
