We are seeing ever increasing demand for steady, monthly income payments, particularly from investors in retirement. Our focus on larger, non-cyclical businesses helps us deliver income through different stages of the economic cycle.”

John Pattullo, Fund Manager, Co-Head of Strategic Fixed Income

A monthly paying income fund, which is one of the oldest bond funds in the UK

Designed to

Seek a high income: The managers look for investments that appear to have the potential to rise in price over the long term while minimising risk. Through careful macroeconomic research and bottom-up security selection of bonds of any quality from any type of issuer, the managers aim to achieve a high level of income.

Focus on income generation: The investment team aims to maintain a balanced portfolio of high-yielding assets, including corporate bonds, secured loans and preference shares1, seeking to keep cash levels in the fund to a minimum.

Control risks: Active risk management, including portfolio positioning and derivative use, allows the fund’s sensitivity to changes in interest rates (duration) and exposure to the credit quality of different issuers to be altered in line with the investment team’s outlook.

1. These are similar to bonds in that they usually pay a fixed rate of income. However, a dividend is paid rather than interest and is subject to the issuing company making sufficient profits.

Benefiting from

A proven process: John Pattullo and Jenna Barnard have worked together for more than 15 years2. They are supported by fellow fund manager, Nicholas Ware, an expert in loans, high yield and private equity, as well as a wider, well-resourced team.

Portfolio diversification: The portfolio is a mix of sub-investment grade (high yield bonds and senior secured loans) and investment grade bonds. The asset allocation between the two is carefully managed, while further diversity is achieved through exposure to issuers with different credit ratings and from different sectors.

A broader toolkit: Principally investing in traditional fixed income securities, the team also makes use of derivatives, such as credit default swaps and interest rate futures, aiming to enhance and smooth returns or to add or reduce risk when deemed appropriate.

Bonds for Income

Join Nicholas Ware, Director of Strategic Fixed Income

Nicholas discusses how to:

  • Understand the historical misforecasting of bond yields and the current backdrop for bond investing
  • Identify appropriate strategies for income seeking clients
  • Remain disciplined in late cycle investing & how to recognise these signals

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income from it may go down as well as up and you may lose the amount originally invested.
