Absolute return global bond strategies
For fixed income investors looking to reduce investment risk without sacrificing returns, an allocation to absolute return bonds is worth considering. These funds aim to provide low-risk, positive performance across all investment environments, with a focus on capital preservation through extensive diversification across fixed income strategies. At Standard Life Investments, we launched our Absolute Return Global Bond Strategies Fund in March 2011. It aims to deliver a target return of cash* +2.5% per annum, gross of fees, over rolling 3-year periods.
To achieve this, our Absolute Return Global Bond Strategies team brings together the macro investment themes of our Multi-Asset Investing Team with the tactical investment strategies of our Fixed Income Team. The team manages Absolute Return Global Bond Strategies using a robust investment process to generate and implement a wide range of fixed income and currency portfolio strategies. Stringent risk management and controls are also vital in meeting the Fund's target at an acceptable level of risk.
