Fund Aims

Objective: The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the M&G PP Index-Linked Fund - the underlying fund.

Underlying Fund Objective: The fund invests mainly in UK Government index-linked gilts, typically with over five years to maturity. The fund is actively managed against its benchmark, the FTSE Actuaries UK Index-Linked Gilts Over 5 Years Index. The fund can also invest in corporate bonds, overseas government bonds and fixed interest gilts. Exposure to short-term exchange rate movements from any overseas holdings is mitigated by hedging.

Performance Objective: To outperform the benchmark by 0.75% a year (before charges) on a rolling three year basis.

Performance comment

Performance as at Q2 2020 - The fund increased the underweight position relative to the benchmark in index linked gilts maturing in 15 to 20 years versus index linked gilts maturing in 10 and 50 years. This had a small negative contribution to fund performance.

The overweight position relative to the benchmark in CPI Linked Credit was a small positive contributor to performance over the quarter. The fund manager remains comfortable with these positions and the credit spread remains at attractive levels.

During the quarter, the fund sold out of index linked gilts and into fixed gilts. The entire position was moved into gilts maturing in 15 years as this is viewed as the optimal position. This was a small negative to performance. The fund maintained its underweight position in index linked gilts maturing in 10 to 20 years relative to those outside of this maturity bucket, relative to the benchmark.

The fund will maintain its exposure to ultra-long index linked gilts versus index linked gilts maturing in 25 to 40 years relative to the benchmark.

Important Information

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

This factsheet is for information purposes only. If there is information or terminology included that you would like to discuss, then please contact an adviser. Investors should refer to their policy documentation and supporting brochures for fund availability, investment strategy, any product information and charges.

These risk ratings have been developed by Prudential to help provide an indication of a fund’s potential level of risk and reward based on the type of assets which may be held by the fund. Other companies may use different descriptions and as such these risk ratings should not be considered as generic across the fund management industry.

We regularly review our fund risk ratings, so they may change in the future. If, in our view, there is a material change in the fund's level of risk, for example due to a significant change to the assets held by the fund or in the way the fund is managed, we will provide information on the new risk rating. We recommend that you make sure you understand the risk rating of any fund before you invest.

You should also consider discussing your decision and the appropriateness of a fund's risk rating with an adviser.

  • Higher Risk
  • Medium to Higher Risk
  • Medium Risk
  • Lower to Medium Risk
  • Lower Risk
  • Minimal Risk

Medium Risk

These funds may invest in multi-asset strategies with a higher weighting in equities (or with significant derivative use), while funds investing mainly in property, high yield or government bonds (such as UK Gilts) are also in this category.
