AllianzGI launches new Allianz Index Linked Gilt strategy to UK with low-cost OEIC


Allianz Global Investors is introducing the Allianz Index Linked Gilt Fund to its UK range. The fund follows an investment strategy investing in inflation-linked gilts, predominantly securities issued by the UK Government.

Allianz Index Linked Gilt Fund will be managed by Mike Riddell, Senior UK Gilt Portfolio Manager and aims to outperform the FTSE Actuaries Government Securities UK Index- Linked All Stocks Index.
The fund is available at a very competitive price of 0.2per cent (Ongoing Charges Figure) to early adopters.
The fund is being introduced to the UK market following the success of the GBP1.5 billion (Assets Under Management) Allianz Gilt Yield Fund, also managed by Mike Riddell, which is the top performing conventional UK government bond fund in its sector since Mike started running the fund in November 2015.
Adam Gent (pictured), Head of Retail & Wholesale UK and Northern Europe, says: “This fund is a natural fit for the UK market, building on the success of our popular gilt strategies led by Mike Riddell. This is another step forward for us in optimising our product mix for the UK market.”
Commenting on the new launch Mike Riddell, Senior UK Gilt Portfolio Manager, says: “Generally, the market for Index linked gilts is highly inefficient and full of anomalies, which for a number of years now we have been able to exploit to generate alpha. Launching this new fund is a natural extension of what we are already doing in this space and I’m looking forward to running what we hope will be a highly competitive fund in the UK.”
