RLAM prepares to launch three short duration bond funds

Royal London Asset Management is looking to launch three short duration fixed-income funds, including a new vehicle for head of government bonds Paul Rayner.

Mr Rayner is to head up a short duration gilt fund, while Craig Inches will run a short duration index-linked fund and Sajiv Vaid will run a short duration credit fund.

The launches are subject to regulatory approval and will be available in the autumn.

A spokesperson said: “We don’t expect interest rates to rise for some time, and when they do, these sorts of products will offer some protection against that.”

The offerings follow the launch of Azhar Hussain’s Short Duration Global High Yield Bond fund in Q1.
