The fund aims to provide an attractive level of income relative to prevailing interest rates whilst maintaining a strong focus on capital preservation.
The Monument Bond Fund does not offer a capital guarantee or principal protection mechanism. Efforts to preserve the fund’s capital will be focused on the selection of underlying mortgage European asset backed securities where the investment manager has a high degree of confidence as to the issuer’s ability to repay the principal due.
The investment policy of the sub-fund is to invest in a diversified portfolio of European asset backed securities (ABS), rated at least BBB- (or equivalent) at the time of investment by one or more of Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s Investor Services and Fitch, where the securities will be backed by the assets of institutions and issuers such as but not limited to residential mortgages, commercial mortgages, automobile leases and loans, SME loans and other secured bonds.
A portion of the portfolio may be held in cash or cash equivalents, such as treasury bills and government bonds, in order to further enhance the Sub-Fund’s liquidity. From time to time it is possible that a significant portion of the portfolio may be invested in securities from a particular geographical region.
Speculation on the timing of the Bank of England’s first post-pandemic rate hike has been rife. But whether the BoE hikes rates later this week, next month or even waits until after year-end, it is worth thinking about what it will mean for the general public, a step away from the financial markets.
