Our view on the sector

Strategic bond funds have the freedom to invest across the fixed-interest spectrum, from traditional government and corporate bonds to higher-risk high-yield bonds. They can also invest up to 20% of the fund overseas and potentially benefit from currency movements. But this relies on the skill of the fund manager in making the right calls. Given the huge flexibility fund managers in this sector have, each fund should be judged on its own merits. Some focus on generating an income while others try to grow investors' money, or shelter it when times get tougher.

Fund Management Group Comment

Artemis was formed in 1997 and offers a range of funds invested in the UK, Europe and around the world. The Artemis philosophy is that a fund's primary aim is to beat the market and generally the fund managers are free to pursue their best ideas in order to achieve this.

Artemis is home to some of the market's leading fund managers who are required to invest their own money into their funds, and therefore success for them is success for their investors. We feel this is a great incentive for them to continue striving for good performance.
