Confucius, the Chinese philosopher, once famously said: “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” Our Simple Guides are written in an easy to understand format aiming to provide an introduction to the basic concepts of investing in the financial markets.
A simple guide to Absolute Returns
Absolute return funds aim to deliver a positive (‘absolute’) return to investors regardless of whether the wider market in which they invest rises or falls.
Please remember that absolute return bond funds do not guarantee positive returns. Performance will be impacted by market movements and the investment decisions made by the fund manager.
Bonds are debt securities issued by companies, governments and the like. For investors, they can provide a stream of returns.
In this guide we explore their structure, why their prices go up and down, and some of the key benefits and drawbacks of investing in them. By speaking to a financial adviser, you can discuss whether investing in bonds is right for you.
A simple guide to the Janus Henderson Index Opportunities Funds
The Janus Henderson Index Opportunities range comprises five funds. The funds are design primarily for institutional investors but are also available to retail investors.
These funds seek to provide exposure to a particular regional equity market but with low volatility* around a customised index. Through the use of a number of investment strategies they seek to achieve performance above that of a purely passive investment approach.
*Volatility here reflects the extent to which price movements in the fund deviates from movement in the index. High deviations reflect higher volatility.
Investment management can appear a complex business. When you invest in a fund, we work hard behind the scenes to pool your money with that of other investors in the fund. All of this costs money, so this guide helps you to understand the charges and expenses incurred by funds.
