SLI launches short duration global index linked bond fund


Standard Life Investments (SLI) has launched a Short Duration Global Index-Linked Bond Fund to complement its existing Global Index-Linked Bond Fund.

The fund aims to generate real returns for investors by investing principally in a global portfolio of short duration bonds.
It can also invest in nominal government bonds, corporate bonds and derivative instruments.
Non Sterling denominated assets will typically be hedged back to Sterling.
Managed jointly by Jonathan Gibbs, head of real returns, and Adam Skerry, investment director, real returns, the fund will allow investors to benefit from our proven long term track record in managing global inflation linked portfolios, but with materially lower duration risk.
Gibbs says: “Global inflation portfolios have provided attractive returns and strong diversification qualities for many years. This new offering allows investors to access this diversification, and the global opportunity set, with a lower exposure to duration risk. It will use the same toolkit as our existing products, and broadens the choice available for our investors.”
