Rathbone Strategic Bond Fund

Select other funds

We aim to deliver a greater total return than the Investment Association (IA) Sterling Strategic Bond sector, after fees, over any rolling five-year period. Total return means the return we receive from the value of our investments increasing (capital growth) plus the income we receive from our investments (interest payments). We use the IA Sterling Strategic Bond sector as a target for our fund’s return because we aim to achieve a better return than the average of funds that are similar to ours.

We aim to deliver this return with a lower volatility than the IA Sterling Strategic Bond sector. As an indication, the value of our fund should be expected to fluctuate less than the sector. Because we measure volatility over a five-year period, some falls may be larger or smaller over shorter periods of time. We aim to limit the amount of volatility risk our fund can take because we want our investors to understand the risk they are taking compared to funds similar to ours.
