Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) has launched a UCITS-compliant OEIC, Absolute Return Government Bond Fund to focus on investors seeking absolute returns from the highly liquid G10 government bond markets.

The Ucits fund will be co-managed by Darren Bustin, head of derivatives, and Paul Rayner, head of government bonds, with support from the firm’s fixed interest and derivatives teams.

The newly launched fund, domiciled in Dublin, will invest in government bonds and associated derivatives from across G10 member countries aiming absolute positive capital growth over a 12 month rolling period.

The fund will take long term strategic position in addition to the managers’ tactical approaches across government bond markets, and utilize a rigorous risk management process to provide consistent returns, irrespective of market conditions.

Rob Williams, head of distribution at RLAM, said, "The launch of this fund completes RLAM’s full-spectrum sovereign bond offering, which includes international exposure and long-only, short duration and now absolute return approaches."

Paul Rayner, said, "RLAM have been running segregated absolute return mandates over the last four years with great success. This fund is a natural step in developing our capability. The team has been working together for over four years and we believe our investment philosophy and process, together with our risk management controls, provide a robust framework as we endeavour to deliver positive performance with low volatility."
