Royal London Corporate Bond

A fixed income fund that invests predominantly in investment grade sterling corporate bonds.

Overview

The Royal London Corporate Bond fund attempts to take advantage of the inefficiencies within the sterling credit markets, and has a focus on investing in more conservative secured debt, where the manager finds attractive and secure assets such as Asset Backed Securities (ABS), social housing and Investment Trusts. The fund is unlikely to take big duration (interest rate) calls, with the majority of performance generated from credit selection.

 

We believe the RLAM fixed income team and credit selection process to be one of the strongest in the UK, which has been a consistent contributor to outperformance. The fund generates a high income, which makes it a strong candidate for the income portfolio.
