Vam Funds launches global government bond fund


Investment company Vam Funds has launched the Vam Global Government Bond Fund, which aims to enable investors to reduce volatility of broader portfolios and generate cash plus returns on a consistent basis.

The fund will consist of government bonds, investment grade rating AAA and AA, which are government guaranteed.

Vam Funds says these bonds, which incur low trading fees due to the depth of markets, produce a low-risk and highly liquid portfolio with a target yield of four per cent net of charges.

Bonds are picked using an process which combines global macro research and top down fundamental and economic research, as well as using quantitative and technical models to determine entry levels.

The new fund is Ucits III compliant and a sub fund of Vam Funds (Lux) Sicav.

Vam Funds has appointed Peers SA to run the fund on its behalf, with Annelise Peers as fund adviser. Most recently she has been running the South African steel industry’s pension fund.

Michael Hunt, managing director of Vam Funds, says: “Government bond funds are low risk investments that provide steady returns over the long term, as well as adding diversification to investment portfolios. We have seen a great deal of demand from IFAs for a product of this nature, and in Annelise Peers we have a talented manager with vast experience and a proven track record in the global government bond field.”

Peers adds: “I am keen to return to this sector and I believe the Vam Global Government Bond Fund is a fantastic product which I am proud to put my name to. I look forward to driving the fund forward from launch to generate consistent, long term returns with low risk and volatility.”
