    Price (Acc)

    These are the shares in the fund that don’t pay out an income to clients. Any dividends – the money a company can pay out to its investors – are reinvested into companies in the fund. Despite no income, the shares should be worth more over time. Good incentive, eh?

    Initial charge

    Some funds charge you when you first invest, which is aptly known as the initial charge. They’re usually between 3-5% but at Bestinvest, we usually don’t charge you a penny!

  • 0.65%
    Annual management charge

    This is how much the fund management company charges to run the fund. It’s like paying a babysitter, dog sitter or house sitter (that makes well-informed, heavily researched changes to improve your baby/dog/house when needed).

  • 0.97%
    Ongoing charges

    This stands for Ongoing Charges Figure. It’s the cost of running a fund and includes admin fees, manager fees, administration costs, etc.

  • 7.40%
    Yield

    How much the fund is currently paying out in income to investors. It’s NOT to be confused with the overall growth of a fund – a very different thing indeed. It’s also NOT a guarantee of future pay-outs, just a snapshot. This is more what it’s not than what it is…

Investment process

The fund aims to achieve a total return over the long term, using a combination of income, capital growth and currency gains. It will invest across the entire fixed income universe, including investment grade and non investment grade debt of governments, government-related or corporate issuers worldwide. The manager's risk budget is defined by analysing ex post and ex ante absolute volatility levels, generally speaking portfolio volatility will be no higher than the Barclays Capital Multiverse index (a global aggregate bond index). There are no formal asset allocation constraints, instead these exposures tend to be limited by reference to absolute volatility relative to this reference benchmark. Maximum exposure to credit has been as a high as 50% in 2009 versus low single digits in 2007-8. The fund will not use leverage. Derivatives may used, principally to express interest rate or currency views. The fund invests in bonds via the cash market, credit derivatives are generally not used across the portfolio to go long or short. Interest rate decisions tend to be a residual of bottom up stock selection process.

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.
