Fixed interest hybrids are less volatile than shares but have higher returns than Vanilla Bonds. Since the Reserve Bank’s announcement of holding the OCR at 1.75% on the 9th August, expectations are that interest rates will not be increasing in the near future. The below list of Fixed Interest hybrid investments have a 1-year resetting feature which ensures that once interest rates start increasing the return on these investments will also rise.
