Royal London Asset Management case study

The benefits of active vs passive government bond management

Published by : Royal London Asset Management

The period from December 2006 - before the financial and European crisis - until now has been one of unprecedented intervention from the Bank of England and the government. Base rates were cut from 5.5% to 0.5% and new unconventional policies were introduced, including £375 billion of quantitative easing and, more recently, forward guidance.

At Royal London Asset Management, we firmly believe that an actively managed fund, built around a philosophy and process that combines diversified strategies across relevant government asset classes, and managed within a risk controlled framework, will deliver consistent long-term outperformance relative to passive management.
