Investors often ask what type of environment is most favourable for bonds. In truth, there is no straightforward answer. It depends on the type of bonds.

The M&G Retail Fixed Interest team manages a wide range of bond funds. While each fund differs in terms of its specific investment strategy, they can be grouped into four categories, according to the environment that we consider to be the most conducive to its ability to perform. Our three flexible bond funds are designed to perform across different market environments.

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested.
