Our view on this Fund

This fund does not feature on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. This is not a recommendation to sell; however, if you are thinking of adding to your investments, we believe the Wealth Shortlist is a good place to start. View funds on the Wealth Shortlist »

Our view on the sector

Funds in this sector can invest in government and corporate bonds issued globally. And they can often be denominated in overseas currencies. Foreign currencies boost performance if sterling weakens, like it did after the UK voted to leave the European Union in 2016, but the reverse is true when sterling strengthens. These funds can be very different from each other. Some focus on generating income, others try to shelter investors' money during the bad times and might not generate any income. We think there are only a handful of investors with the skill to successfully manage a fund in this sector.
