Our view on the sector

Funds in this sector invest mainly in 'investment grade bonds'. These are issued by companies that are more likely to be able to repay their debts to bondholders. As such, they tend to offer lower yields than bonds issued by companies that are less likely to be able to pay off their debts. Corporate bonds have generally performed well since the 2008 financial crisis. With interest rates on cash so low, they've appealed to income investors. This has pushed up bond prices, but means their yields have also fallen. Some suggest there is now less value in this area of the market. We think that with interest rates likely to stay lower for longer, a corporate bond fund could be a good addition to a diversified portfolio invested to generate income.
