How the Fund is managed
The Fund offers exposure to high quality UK government bonds. This asset class tends to have low correlation to equities, especially when global stock markets fall, and gilts are seen as “safe havens” The Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 5 years.
We employ a conservative approach, focused on managing interest rate and duration risks with the aim of minimising losses when interest rates are rising.
Drawing on experience
The fixed income team at Canada Life Asset Management are able to draw on their long experience in managing UK gilts.
We don’t know yet, but preparing for an uncertain future is all part of a fund manager’s job. We asked Canada Life Asset Management’s managers and research specialists what UK investors might expect in 2021 and beyond.
