Nomura Asset Management recently extended the availability of its two global inflation-linked bond funds to Switzerland and Spain.
The two Ucits-compliant funds consist of euro and US dollar share classes and are managed by a team in Germany, where the funds are also domiciled.
The Nomura Real Return Fund is part of the Nomura ILB All Maturities Strategy, and the Normural Real Protect Fund are part of the Nomura ILB Short/Medium Maturities Strategy.
The extension of the funds’ availability comes at a time when implicit inflation rates remain inexpensive compared to historical valuations, the firm said.
The two funds invest primarily in inflation-indexed bonds from issuers of high credit rating from OECD countries.
