Our Global Inflation-Linked Bond Fund
Our Global Inflation-Linked Bond Fund can help protect capital against erosion through inflation. In addition, because the correlation between inflation-linked bonds and other asset classes has traditionally been fairly low, investing in the Fund can also contribute towards portfolio diversification.
Over the past decade, governments and companies worldwide have stepped up their issuance of inflation-linked debt, helping to create a truly global market. Today, issuance of inflation-linked bonds is no longer confined to the US and the UK - issuers can be found as far afield as Brazil, Mexico and Turkey. The characteristics of these economies, of course, differ starkly. So while Japan battles deflation, investors in the UK and large parts of the developing world are seeing inflationary pressures. In turn, this lack of homogeneity results in differing interest-rate policies. The divergence not only puts inflation at the forefront of investment debates, it also creates multiple opportunities for experts with a global outlook to add value.
By investing on a global basis, the real returns team add value by exploiting differences between interest rate and inflation environments. Managed by Jonathan Gibbs since its launch in 2004, our Global Inflation-Linked Bond Fund has a demonstrable long-term track record. Their active management and innovative investment process, which combines intensive quantitative and qualitative research with broader market insights, also help to enhance returns.
