Our talented retail fixed income team is made up of expert fund managers and investment specialists. Every member of the team has in-depth experience in all the major bond markets and is given the freedom to act on their convictions to express individual flair in their portfolios.
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.
Our managers can draw on the rich resource of an expert team with over 90 credit analysts.
Our fund managers will use the input of the credit analysts when they make their decisions as to sector and individual credit selection. The credit team’s analysis covers the full range of credits available in the market, from AAA right through to high yield issues, in euros as well as sterling. As a significant fixed income investor, M&G is in a pre-eminent position and therefore enjoys:
- An extensive research and support infrastructure
- A strong ability to negotiate prices, bond design, covenants and deal allocations
- Access to the best market information from external economists, analysts and researchers
Risk is implicit in bond funds and thus at M&G every security is analysed for risk individually as an integral part of the credit-selection process. The management of risk is core to the fixed income process and is considered at every stage of the investment process, from the individual selection of securities right up to the overall structure of a portfolio.
