Range
Our award-winning bond funds offer solutions for investors in different market conditions, and provide access to the main categories of fixed income securities. While each fund differs in terms of specific investment strategy, our fixed income products can be grouped according to the main type of bonds held in the fund:

   
Fund Main type of bonds held
M&G Global Government Bond Fund Government bonds – Issued by governments; among the biggest issuers of these securities are the UK, US and German governments.
   
M&G European Inflation Linked Corporate Bond Fund Inflation-linked bonds – Inflation-linked bonds are fixed income securities where both the value of the loan and the interest payments are adjusted in line with inflation over the life of the security. Also referred to as index-linked bonds.
   
M&G Strategic Corporate Bond Fund
M&G Short Dated Corporate Bond Fund
M&G Corporate Bond Fund
M&G European Corporate Bond Fund
M&G Global Corporate Bond Fund

Corporate bonds – Issued by companies and typically offer higher interest payments than government bonds as they are often considered more risky.
   
M&G Global High Yield Bond Fund
M&G European High Yield Bond Fund

High yield bonds – Issued by companies with a low credit rating from a recognised credit rating agency, such as Standard & Poor's. They are considered to be riskier than better quality, ie higher-rated, bonds but have the potential for higher rewards.
   
M&G Global Floating Rate High Yield Fund Floating rate notes – Usually issued by companies, these securities offer interest (income) payments that are periodically adjusted depending on the change in a reference interest rate.
   
M&G Emerging Markets Bond Fund Emerging market bonds – Issued by governments and companies from emerging markets. These are economies in the process of rapid growth and increasing industrialisation. Investments in emerging markets are generally considered to be riskier than those in developed markets.
   
M&G Optimal Income Fund
M&G Global Macro Bond Fund
Flexible – A mixture of different types of bonds
   

The value of investments, and the income from them, will fluctuate. This will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested.
