We have a long and successful history of managing global government debt and it is one of our longest-running asset classes. Investors looking for attractive risk-adjusted returns from government bond portfolios issued in both developed and developing markets can draw on our investment team’s in-depth experience and global expertise.

We follow a rigorous, disciplined and proven investment process that includes in-depth analysis within a strong risk-controlled framework. The aim is to add consistent value in all market conditions using both conventional and index-linked bonds across the UK, European and global fixed income markets.

We have three government pooled funds:

  • UK Government All Maturities Bond Fund
  • UK Government Long Maturities Bond Fund
  • Global ex-UK Bond Fund

Investors can also access our government bond capabilities across sterling, euro, US dollar and global markets on a segregated basis.

Features

Diverse sources of return: our capabilities allow us to add potential value through long or short duration positions, exploit shifts in the yield curve, security selection across the curve and cross-country relative value trades.

Precision: the portfolio managers can target specific duration and risk characteristics through the use of derivatives, allowing for long and short exposure and precise risk/return profile.

Capability: we manage government bond portfolios across global markets, allowing us to access the most diverse opportunity set permitted by our mandate and target the widest range of relative value opportunies.
