Put cash to work

The time for fixed income is now!

Why Fixed Income?

Today's high interest rate environment has helped push bond prices down and yields higher. This means that there is now an opportunity for investors to lock in those high yields before anticipated interest rate cuts in the second half of 2024, creating the potential for strong returns both from capital appreciation and high levels of income.

We believe now is a good time to put cash to work by investing in fixed income.

Importance of bond investment

Bonds have often been seen by investors as a less interesting or rewarding option than investing in shares. They seem more complex to understand and have historically been considered a 'safer' option, mainly reserved for those in need of a regular income or added protection for their investments. However, they can also provide important diversification benefits for portfolios, as the return streams from bonds is different to equities and when equities are falling in value, bonds could inversely rise.

Please watch our short educational videos, which introduce the basics of bonds as an asset class including the relationship between prices and yields.

Introduction to bonds

Introduction to bonds
Bonds can provide a regular income and help balance portfolio risk. Typically they are less volatile than some other asset classes and can be used to increase portfolio diversification.

Basics of bond prices, yields and duration

Basics of bond prices, yields and duration
Bonds have two main sources of returns, income from interest paid and capital appreciation. A bond’s yield is based on it’s expected return to an investor, so when bond prices go up it’s yield will fall.
