Our view on the sector

UK investors need little introduction to America. It's the world's biggest stock market and is home to world-leading companies in almost every industry there is, from media and film, through to manufacturing and transportation. We think most diversified portfolios should have some exposure to the US market. But it's one of the most heavily researched in the world so share prices of well-known companies can react quickly to new information. We think this can make it more difficult for fund managers to find opportunities missed by others and to consistently perform better than the broader market over the long term. Many funds investing in the US aim to grow the value of your original investment, rather than pay a high level of income. Some focus on the largest companies in the market. Others look for opportunities amongst small and medium-sized companies, which may offer greater growth potential, but are higher risk.

Fund Management Group Comment

M&G was established in 1931, and is today one of the largest active investors in the UK. In 1999 M&G was acquired by Prudential, one of the largest financial services providers in the UK and Europe. M&G is an autonomous business unit within the Prudential Group, retaining its own style but benefiting from the advantages of belonging to a large parent company.

M&G is not interested in chasing 'hot stocks' or market fashions. Its fund managers invest for the long term and have the freedom to think independently and act on their convictions. They are also backed by M&G's extensive experience and in-house research capabilities, across all key asset classes - equities, fixed interest and commercial property. One sector in which M&G has been particularly successful is corporate bonds.
