IS Government Bond Fund
Investment time: 2 yrs+
Who Should Invest?
The Fund suits all investors who wish to invest funds for two years or longer. The average maturity of the Fund's assets may be from 4 to 7 years, which means that its price is sensitive to changes in yields and may drop temporarily. This Fund offers a prudent alternative because it invests exclusively in domestic government bonds. In addition, the average maturity of these assets is fairly short, as compared with other government bond funds, so the risk of changes in yields is not as high.
- Invests exclusively in domestic government bonds
- Active asset management
- Low costs
