Standard Life Investments Higher Income
The Standard Life Investments Higher Income fund endeavours to provide investors with a higher level of income than would be available to them through investments in gilts. The fund focuses on Sterling and Euro denominated corporate bonds of a sub-investment grade level.
The portfolio may also feature exposure to investment grade bonds if the fund team feels that this will best help achieve its primary investment objective. The fund looks for companies and opportunities that have not yet been fully recognised by other market actors, but tries to avoid those that are growing aggressively through acquisition.
The fund portfolio is likely to be fairly diversified, with currency generally fully hedged to Sterling. Individual positions above 3% are scarce and credit and sector exposures are monitored through CreditDelta.
