Our view on this Fund

This fund does not feature on our Wealth 50 list of what we believe are the best funds in each sector. If a fund is not within our Wealth 50 this is not necessarily a recommendation to sell. However, if you are thinking of adding to your investments we believe Wealth 50 funds are superior alternatives. View funds on the Wealth 50 »

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.
