Investment process

The active approach to this fund involves taking relative positions against the specified benchmark within a risk controlled framework, based on market views considering liquidity, economic and valuation factors. These views are the basis of the investment policy for duration, yield curve and credit positioning, to be considered when reviewing the portfolio's composition. When selecting individual bonds the most important factor to be considered is the industry of the issuing company. Industry prospects are assessed using Porters Five Forces which are power of buyer, power of suppliers, substitutes, barriers to entry and rivalry. They will also consider regulation applicable to the industry in their analysis. The remainder of the stock selection process involves fundamentals analysis via company management meetings and evaluation of current trading levels, looking for bonds that have been oversold in the market. Monitoring systems are used to predict individual bond and sector movements.

About the MRI

Our unique indicator: the Bestinvest Manager Record Index (MRI) measures the likelihood that the fund manager is adding value through their decisions. It is based on their performance record over the course of their career, adjusted for the amount of risk taken. MRI is an important contributor to our fund rating system but it is also vital to take account of qualitative factors. It is also very important to select funds to form a cohesive portfolio with an appropriate overall risk level.
