Rhys Davies

Fixed Interest Portfolio Manager and Senior Credit Analyst

In this latest update, Rhys Davies discusses how the general improvement in confidence around the global economic outlook has influenced the performance of the Fixed Interest investment companies, how the portfolios are currently positioned and where he sees the biggest risks and opportunities over the coming months.

Investment risks

The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested.

When making an investment in an investment trust you are buying shares in a company that is listed on a stock exchange. The price of the shares will be determined by supply and demand. Consequently, the share price of an investment trust may be higher or lower than the underlying net asset value of the investments in its portfolio and there can be no certainty that there will be liquidity in the shares.
