Where do retail bonds fit in my portfolio?

Experts discuss how retail bonds, an increasingly viable alternative to bond funds, can form part of an investment portfolio.

Where do retail bonds fit in my portfolio?

The latest issue of Income Investor looks at how retail bonds can form part of an income portfolio.

Unlike bond funds, retail bonds don't carry an annual management charge and some offer attractive coupons. But while funds offer diversification, you could be placing too many eggs in one basket if you invest too much in a single retail bond.

In this chapter, experts discuss how best to select retail bonds and how they can be employed in portfolios.

You can access 'Fitting retail bonds into your investment approach' here.
