Why fixed income?

A well-diversified, actively managed fixed income fund plays an important role in an investment strategy regardless of the market environment. Fixed income can offer:

 

Capital protection: A diversified portfolio of fixed income securities tends to be much less volatile than an equity portfolio, which means it is less likely to incur large losses in the short term. Investors are repaid the amount of money they originally invested at the end of the agreed period.

 

Income generation: As well as attractive and reliable income streams, a diversified fixed income portfolio can provide income with a lower level of risk than equities, and may offer higher income than money market funds or term deposits.

 

Diversification: Over the long-term, diversification can provide better risk-adjusted returns. Bonds can also help reduce volatility and preserve capital, especially for investors with exposure to equities.
