Re: How do you invest the Cash portion?

What are your thoughts on putting cash into senior floating rate bonds rather than unsecured bank deposits? Eg: https://www.betashares.com.au/fund/australian-bank-floating-rate-bond-etf Unfortunately there are no Australian Treasury note ETF's and while there is an FDIC equivalent, it is totally unf...
