Applying the prudent person principle to Multi-Strategy Fixed Income

Capital preservation, predictable returns and diversification benefits have kept fixed income front of mind for insurers. This is unsurprising given the heavy regulatory demands and requirement to match liabilities they face. However, exceptional monetary policy measures have fundamentally changed the rules of the game – risk on traditional fixed income is rising.

Key risks

For further information on the risks and risk profiles of individuals strategies, please refer to the relevant documentation.

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up.  Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Iliquidity risk

Alternative Income assets are significantly less liquid than assets traded on public markets. Where funds are invested in infrastructure/real estate, investors may not be able to switch or cash in an investment when they want because infrastructure may not always be readily saleable. If this is the case, we may defer a request to redeem the investment.

Credit risk

Bond values are affected by changes in interest rates and the bond issuer's creditworthiness. Bonds that offer the potential for a higher income typically have a greater risk of default.

Real estate risk

Investors should bear in mind that the valuation of real estate/infrastructure is generally a matter of valuers’ opinion rather than fact.
