All calculations are in GBP

Managed by

Adam Walker

Adam Walker is a fund manager at Ignis Asset Management. Walker is responsible for the Ignis Corporate Bond fund where he physically holds over 75% of the fund’s bonds and believes that cash is an important aspect of his tactical strategy. Based in London, Walker has co-managed the fund alongside Chris Bowie since February 2008.

Objective

The Fund aims to achieve a higher yield than that available from a traditional Corporate Bond Fund. It also invests in a wide range of investments which, while riskier, are carefully chosen to control the risk. We actively manage this Fund to produce a higher level of income, which we pay out every month. There is a higher risk to your capital as up to 70% of the Fund's investments are in noninvestment- grade bonds (which carry a higher risk of default). However, we manage the overall risk of the Fund by focusing the remainder, around 30%, of the investments on investment-grade bonds (lower risk). The Fund tends to invest in bonds with shorter maturity dates. The Fund invests in a significant number of corporate bonds which are not in pounds sterling.
