Investment Objective

The M&G Corporate Bond fund invests mainly in sterling denominated 'investment grade' debt (BBB and above). The fund manager aims to identify corporate bonds that offer sufficient compensation for the risks of owning them. Typically this will involve an emphasis on A and BBB rated credits, although this may not always be the case. The fund's exposure to corporate debt may be gained through the use of derivatives. Default risk is constantly monitored and always well diversified. The fund focuses on proprietary research using our extensive credit resources, rather than on external research, as ratings agencies can be slow to revise their credit ratings and do not assess the effect of event risk on a company.
