Corporate bonds are a core asset class that offer a good source of relatively safe income in a world where we have lost a lot of previously safe sources”
Paul Read, fund manager
Why European Bonds?
Providing stable predictable cash flows, bonds have traditionally been the foundation of an investment portfolio. While the public is currently focused on governments with excessive debt levels, companies’ balance sheets in Europe today are generally robust and cash balances are good. We have seen strong capital returns in areas of the corporate bond market. We expect that from here, income will be an important driver of total return. Corporate bonds are an attractive income producing asset class that can also diversify an investor’s portfolio.
