Commentary

Performance as at Q1 2024 - UK index-linked government bonds (index-linked gilts) fell in the first quarter of 2024 and underperformed conventional gilts. The fall was driven by a rise in gilt yields and a fall in five-year breakeven rates. Over the period, persistent inflation led investors to scale back their expectations for interest rate cuts this year, which caused bond prices to retrace some of their gains in the previous quarter. The Bank of England maintained interest rates at 5.25% in March; however, governor Andrew Bailey said that rate cuts are “on the way” and that it was “reasonable” for financial markets to price in two or three rate cuts this year – at the start of the quarter the market had anticipated six cuts. The benchmark 10-year gilt yielded 3.9% at the end of the period, up from 3.6% three months earlier. Longer-dated gilts, particularly those over 15 years, suffered more than shorter-dated gilts. Meanwhile, breakeven rates fell over the period from 4.0% to 3.6%, indicating investor inflation expectations over five years.

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).

Source of portfolio data: Broadridge. Source of performance data: FE fundinfo. We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn’t a guide to future performance. The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with gross income reinvested. The value of your client’s investment can go down as well as up and the amount your client gets back may be less than they put in.

Fund Specific Risks

Charges to Capital

Part, or all of the periodic annual management fee(s) and expenses may be charged to capital which could increase the potential for the capital value of your investment to be eroded. Your capital could also decrease if income withdrawals exceed the growth rate of the fund(s).

High Yield Bonds

The fund invests in high yield bonds. High yield bonds carry a greater risk of default than investment grade bonds, and economic conditions and interest rate movements will have a greater effect on their price. Income levels may not be achieved and the income provided may vary.

Value of Investments

The value of investments, and any income can fall, as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invested. Neither capital nor income is guaranteed.

Investments Long Term

Investments should be regarded as long term and are not suitable for money which may be needed in the short term, you should always have a sufficient cash reserve.

Solvency of Bond Issuers

If the fund you choose invests in bonds there is a risk that the issuer may default, resulting in a loss to the portfolio.

Returns Are Not Guaranteed

What you receive when you sell your investment is not guaranteed; it depends on how your investments perform.

Inflation

Inflation will reduce the real value of your investments in future.

Taxation and Tax Relief

Levels of taxation and tax relief are subject to change.

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 intended for the advisers of occupational pension schemes using Prudential group pension contracts and Prudential grouped personal pensions and Stakeholder pension contracts. its purpose is to provide an insight into how investment markets and funds have performed over the period and is provided for information only. You should refer to your client's scheme documentation (e.g. Fund Guide) for fund availability, investment strategy, any scheme 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.

  • 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.
