Absolute return bond strategy
Our absolute return bond strategy aims to produce attractive returns in all market conditions by taking a flexible, broad approach to fixed income that harnesses the best opportunities in the market. The strategy is unconstrained and invests in a wide range of fixed income markets including government bonds, investment grade, high-yield, loans, asset-backed securities, emerging markets and currencies.
Investors can access our absolute return bond capabilities through the BNY Mellon Absolute Return Bond Fund, and the Bonds Plus Fund and Bonds Plus 400 Fund. Our absolute return bond capabilities are also available on a segregated basis.
Unconstrained approach: the strategy is not tied to the confines of a traditional fixed income benchmark index, allowing the managers more freedom in asset allocation in order to seek out different sources of return irrespective of market conditions.
Robust derivatives platform: the strategy’s managers are able to express both positive and negative views, aiming to generate positive performance in all market conditions and hedge unwanted or unrewarded risks where desirable.
Global diversification: aims for consistent risk-adjusted returns by investing across the full global opportunity set while operating within strict risk-management parameters.
Effective return-seeking component of an LDI strategy: helps generate positive absolute returns while avoiding downside risks to help improve a scheme's funding level.
The value of investments and any income from them will fluctuate and is not guaranteed (this may be partly due to exchange rate fluctuations). Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
Investments in bonds are affected by interest rates and inflation trends which may affect the value of the portfolio.
Please refer to the underlying fund or strategy documentation such as the Prospectus or IMA for details of the specific risks associated with investment.
