Objective and Policy

The Investment Grade Fixed Interest Fund is a 100% investment grade bond fund in the IA UK Corporate Bond sector. 

As a further quality control, the fund will always hold 25%-35% in AAA rated debt. The fund managers maintain a diverse portfolio in excess of 100 holdings and the focus is on high quality issuance which helps to maintain low volatility. 

Within the bounds of investing in Investment Grade corporate bonds and UK Government Gilts, the fund is flexible in the underlying duration of its holdings and seeks to protect against both credit and interest rate risk.
