Until recently it has been hard for advisers and direct investors to gain exposure to investments in Australian corporate loans. The asset class offers diversification and income; however, access has traditionally been limited to wholesale investors and institutions.

In October 2017, Metrics Credit Partners  listed the MCP Master Income Trust (ASX:MXT), opening the door to an alternative fixed income asset allocation solution. MXT was named as Listed Investment Company of the Year in 2018 by research firm Lonsec.

In this short video Andrew Lockhart, Partner at Metrics Credit Partners provides an overview of the asset class and outlines how MXT has exceeded the investment objectives it set out to achieve.
