Allianz brings index-linked gilt strategy to UK

Allianz_Global_InvestorsGerman fund house Allianz Global Investors is introducing the Allianz Index-Linked Gilt Fund to its UK range.

The fund follows an investment strategy investing in inflation-linked gilts, predominantly securities issued by the UK government.

It will be managed by Mike Riddell, senior UK gilt portfolio manager and aims to outperform the FTSE Actuaries Government Securities UK Index-Linked All Stocks Index.

It is available with an ongoing charges figure of 0.2% to early adopters.

Riddell said: “Generally, the market for index-linked gilts is highly inefficient and full of anomalies, which for a number of years now we have been able to exploit to generate alpha.”
