Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested. Income from investments may fluctuate. Performance figures are on a bid to bid with net income reinvested basis. Valuations are based on the previous day's prices.
The fund is classified as a UK Gilts fund under the Investment Association sector definitions. In that context, while holding a minimum of 80% of its assets in gilts, the fund can invest at least 95% of its assets in sterling denominated (or hedged back to sterling) government-backed securities with a credit rating that is the same or higher than the UK. Typically the fund holds all of its assets in UK gilts.
We understand that for many of our clients, fixed interest investments represent the low-risk part of their portfolio. Therefore, our investment philosophy is designed to deliver consistent, long-term returns.
We employ a conservative strategy for managing the fund and positioning for interest rate risk. In addition to focusing on UK economic developments, we closely monitor economic trends in other major economies in order to form a long-term view on economic fundamentals and the outlook for government bonds.
We employ a solid, conservative strategy that focuses on the big picture and seeks to avoid the distractions caused by short-term trends.
Over time we believe this approach should deliver above-average returns with relatively low volatility.
