Short Duration Corporate Bond Fund

The Short Duration Corporate Bond Fund is an actively managed bond fund. It primarily invests in investment grade corporate bonds. The average duration of the bonds will typically be 1 to 3 years, but may extend down to 0 years or up to 5 years. It may also invest in supranational bonds and sovereign bonds. This fund may invest some of its assets outside of the eurozone subject to currency and duration exposure limits. Corporate bonds are subject to increased liquidity risk compared to sovereign bonds. This means that the fund may not always be able to sell its assets for full value, and this could significantly impact your returns if you exit or enter the fund at these times. As the fund is managed from the point of view of a euro investor any currency hedging that may be conducted will be into euros. This fund is managed by Zurich Life.
