WHY WOULD CON­SIDER ADDING IT

Finweek English Edition - - FUND IN FOCUS -

This fund is con­structed to out­per­form the bench­mark while keep­ing risk lev­els rel­a­tively low. It’s had a tough time so far this year com­pared to its bench­mark on a monthly ba­sis, which il­lus­trates the im­por­tance of longer in­vest­ment time frames – a min­i­mum of one year is rec­om­mended, and Ma­haraj sug­gests three years. Adding ex­po­sure to a bond fund is a good op­tion for in­vestors who re­quire rel­a­tively pre­dictable in­come flows, or who are con­cerned that we may be head­ing into a bear mar­ket.
