M&G Optimal Income Fund - Taking risk where we are paid to do so


Volatility has proven to be the predominant theme in financial markets so far in 2018, but we remain positive on prospects for the global economy. As a result, we believe corporate bond spreads can tighten further, potentially back towards levels last seen in 2004. From a valuations perspective, we continue to prefer investment grade corporate bonds over high yield credit. This is why the fund’s average credit quality stands close to its highest level since launch.
