Citywire Selection verdict: This strategic fund has the scope to invest across all parts of the global bond market, including corporate and high yield bonds. Fund manager Ariel Bezalel has a shrewd eye in identifying market changes and adjusting the portfolio as sentiment shifts. Safe haven positions in Australian government bonds currently aim to mitigate continued concerns of a Chinese slowdown. He is also wary about deflationary pressures and risk in the high yield market. We believe that through this flexible remit, Bezalel can reward investors as the global bond market evolves through this low yield environment.
