This fund's run by the experienced and capable Richard Woolnough. He has the freedom to invest across global bonds markets, and he can even invest part of the fund in shares when he thinks they'll do better than bonds. This makes it a more adventurous option, aimed at those happy to take a bit more risk for potentially higher returns.
Richard Woolnough's wider economic and sector views tend to drive performance. He's got a good record of getting the big calls right, although he isn't successful every time. We think he'll do a good job for long-term investors. But the fund's ongoing charges are relatively high. We think there are other options in the sector that have great potential, but also come with lower charges.
