Strategic bond funds can offer investors exposure to many different areas of fixed income such as government, corporate and high-yield bonds, offering portfolio diversification. However, strategic bond funds come in many flavours. The strategic bond sector is one with a high dispersion of returns, inconsistent performance, and high correlation with the high-yield market.
Our Strategic Bond Fund has a long track record managed with a consistent process and team. We invest in the best ideas across global fixed income markets using a long-term, fundamentally driven approach within a focused portfolio. We seek to provide clients with superior risk-adjusted returns through market cycles and minimise drawdowns during periods of volatility.
The Aviva Investors Strategic Bond Fund represents a compelling option for investors seeking to outsource their fixed income decision making to a truly global team of bond specialists. The fund is designed to provide a strategic anchor for a core fixed income allocation:
Total return focus
Long-term outperformance with less risk. Fixed income investing involves asymmetric risks that are skewed to the downside – in other words, the potential losses are greater than the potential gains. This can result in a tendency to focus on avoiding defaults. However, when trying to maximise total returns, identifying winners is also crucial.
