FTSE/JSE All Bond Index
The Allan Gray Bond Fund aims to balance credit, duration, and liquidity risks when selecting investments. The fund is actively managed and seeks to generate total returns for investors rather than trying to mirror/track the returns of the FTSE/JSE All Bond Index. When the managers cannot find value in the bond markets, the fund may allocate more funds towards cash investments to obtain better returns.
