The Fund invests in South African interest bearing securities. Securities include national government, parastatal, municipal, corporate bonds and money market instruments. The Fund price is sensitive to interest rate movements because of the long-term nature of the Fund’s investments. The duration of the Fund may differ materially from the benchmark. The Fund is managed to comply with investment limits governing retirement funds.
Seek a bond ‘building block’ for a diversified multi-asset class portfolio
Are looking for returns in excess of those provided by money market or cash investments
Are prepared to accept more risk of capital depreciation than in a money market or cash investment
The Bond Fund’s goal is to deliver returns that exceed inflation and cash over the long term, without taking on undue risk. The Fund’s benchmark is the FTSE/JSE All Bond Index.
Strategy of Allan Gray Bond Fund
The fund aims to balance credit risk, duration risk and liquidity risk when selecting investments. Allan Gray targets total returns for investors rather than trying to mirror the returns of the FTSE/JSE All Bond Index. When Allan Gray cannot find value in the bond markets, their portfolio will be weighted towards cash to get better returns.

From the time I first connected with Investonline many years ago, the feel-good element was present. Professional, friendly, and proactive advice and suggestions, have always been provided in the best interests of the client. I continue to be very happy with all interactions with Investonline, from my designated Financial Planner, to whoever else might be on the end of a telephone call or e-mail.
Understanding the Client's Needs
Great to deal with a company who went out of their way to understand my specific needs and to explain their reasons for suggesting alternative investments to what I initially was considering. Admin and contact with Investonline has been excellent so far.
