Bonds: To provide the potential for overall returns these funds invest in bonds, also known as fixed interest securities. This is achieved by receiving regular interest on loans to companies or governments. There is a chance the bond issuer could fall into financial difficulty and will not be able to pay the interest or the loan back, which could result in a fall in your investment returns. Bonds can also be sensitive to trends in interest rate movements and if interest rates go up, the returns on your investment are likely to fall as bonds can become less attractive. On the other hand, if interest rates fall, bonds are likely to become more attractive and your investment returns increase.
