Fund description

The Aegon Strategic Global Bond Fund is an unconstrained, flexible portfolio that consists of a dynamic blend of the fixed income universe constructed to maximise risk adjusted total returns through the cycle. The fund delivers returns from a combination of targeted market beta (both interest rate and credit) and a diverse range of attractive alpha ideas. Whilst not rigidly constructed around a benchmark, investors can compare performance relative to the Bloomberg Barclays Aggregate Bond Index USD.

Key performance drivers

Our strategic bond funds are portfolios of our best ideas from a diverse range of alpha sources.   The  Portfolio managers also have the ability to overlay the alpha positioning with tactical, targeted beta positioning through the use of derivatives.

  • Duration and yield curve ideas - Outright duration positioning, Cross G7 market selection, Curve steepeners or flatteners, real yields vs nominal.
  • Asset allocation and credit risk positioning - Government vs IG vs HY vs EM, Political preferences e.g. Italy, France, UK, Identifying themes e.g. oil disruption and tariffs.
  • Sector and security selection - Financial vs corporates and senior vs subordinated debt, Sector choices e.g. consumer staples, retail, utilities, Cash-flow focus, asset recourse, sector winners

Distinguishing characteristics

  • Truly flexible solution - Our strategic bond funds are diversified, flexible solutions that provide broad exposure to fixed income markets. With such a substantial opportunity set, it is vital for our team to use the flexibilities available to them to actively navigate the market. Having identified six ways to make money covering fixed income markets, we adapt the portfolio to benefit from each of these alpha sources across the market cycle.
  • Extensive resource – As part of a 140-strong fixed income platform, our Strategic bond team are able to tap into a vast set of insights spanning across the fixed income universe. Our team is deeply resourced, expanding idea generation and gives us greater conviction in our bottom-up ideas.
  • Risk focus - The key differentiator relative to many of our peers, rests in our unwavering focus on delivering alpha dominated risk-adjusted returns above purely allocating market beta. We invest in liquid fixed income instruments, not muddying the water with FX risk, equity risk or private placements. Investors are exposed to only fixed income risks and returns.
