About The Fund

Investment Aim

The Fund is a sub-fund of Legg Mason Global Funds plc, an open-ended umbrella investment company constituted in Ireland. The Fund seeks to maximise total return through capital appreciation and income by investing at least two-thirds of its Net Asset Value in investment grade debt securities denominated in the currencies of, or issuers located primarily in, developed countries around the world. The Sub-Investment Manager will concentrate investments in undervalued markets that provide the best opportunity for declining interest rates and a return to lower real rates over time.

About the Investment Strategy

  • The investment strategy reflects the manager's conviction that countries with high real interest rates and stable or appreciating currencies are the best indicators of value across global fixed income markets.
  • The manager therefore seeks bonds with the highest real yields, with risk controlled by purchasing undervalued securities and managing currency to protect and increase returns.
  • Investments are typically concentrated in a focused number countries that appear to offer the best total return potential.
  • Significant investments are made in targeted positions and benchmark hugging is avoided.
