Funds round up: Nomura Asset Management, BlackRock and more
09/02/2018 , News Team

Nomura Asset Management’s Global Dynamic Bond Fund has reached a significant performance milestone in achieving a three-year track record. Over its first three years it has returned 11.31 percent, well above the median return of comparable funds. Managed by Richard Hodges, head of Unconstrained Fixed Income, the fund has used its flexible, dynamic investment strategy to participate in the strong performance of fixed income markets whilst containing downside risk through highly active and efficient risk management. The fund now holds positions designed to benefit from pockets of fixed income securities where return opportunities remain, but is also positioned to positively benefit from a rising interest environment in the US in particular. Mr Hodges will present a review of the strategy and outline his thoughts on Wednesday 21 February 2018 at One Angel Lane, London.

 BlackRock has launched the BlackRock Global Funds (BGF) Dynamic High Income Fund, which seeks to broaden income sources for investors, at a time when finding traditional income has been a challenging task. Managed by Michael Fredericks, Justin Christofel and Alex Shingler of BlackRock’s Multi-Asset Income Investing team, the fund seeks to deliver consistent, high income and attractive total return through asset classes complementary to traditional income investments. These asset classes include global REITs, preferred stocks, floating rate loans, mortgage-backed securities and equity covered call options. Employing a flexible approach to asset allocation, the Fund seeks a balance between consistent, high-income and attractive total return, while managing risk relative to a 70 percent equity/30 percent bond risk benchmark.
