AXA Sterling Corporate Bond

Ranked 56 out of 114 in - Sterling Corporate Bond over 12 months
All calculations are in GBP unless stated

Managed by

Philip Roantree

Objective

The Fund invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of investment grade bonds issued by companies. The fund manager seeks to reduce the effect of credit risk through its analysis and selection of bonds (with a particular emphasis on industry and issuer). Where bonds are denominated in a currency other than Sterling, the Fund aims to reduce the risk of movements in exchange rates between such currency and Sterling through the use of derivatives. The Fund may also use derivatives in an attempt to reduce the overall risks of its investments, reduce the costs of investing or generate additional capital or income.
