Kames Strategic Bond

Following the departure of both David Roberts and Phil Milburn, two of the three named managers of the Kames Strategic Bond fund, we have decided to downgrade the star rating of the fund. This also applies to the offshore version of the fund, Kames Strategic Global Bond.

The fund has been significantly behind its performance target for some time (it targets first quartile versus the strategic bond sector over three years; currently fourth quartile). After speaking to the new management team on the fund, Juan Valenzuela and Alex Pelteshki, as well as the new Head of Fixed Income Stephen Snowden, there is little evidence to suggest we would see a significant performance improvement from here.

For those who wish to maintain exposure to strategic bond funds, Henderson Strategic Bond or Fidelity Strategic Bond could be considered as alternatives.

The value of investments, and the income derived from them, can go down as well as up and you can get back less than you originally invested.

This does not constitute personal advice. If you are in doubt as to the suitability of an investment please contact one of our advisers. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

Bonds issued by major governments and companies will be more stable than those issued by emerging markets or smaller corporate issuers; in the event of an issuer experiencing financial difficulty, there may be a risk to some or all of the capital invested. Please note that historical or current yields should not be considered reliable indicators of future performance.
