‘Resilience’ has greater resonance in the current uncertain environment we live in. When unforeseen market events occur, investors with resilient and high quality assets will have the best possible shock absorbers to help protect them from downside risk.
Investment markets continue to be tested in this highly uncertain environment. Markets will likely remain volatile, with a number of potentially significant counter trend rallies. Continued threats of a global economic recession and corporate debt defaults, along with the prospect of sustained low interest rates are creating further uncertainty for investors.
In times like these, asset quality and liquidity matter more than ever.
High grade sovereign bonds have historically defended and protected when needed during previous sustained bear markets and we believe they will continue to be a genuine store of wealth in highly uncertain times.
Adding high grade bonds to a balanced portfolio alongside other riskier assets can help offset risk and assist to get the balance right between risk and return.
They can help investors create a portfolio that satisfies the demands of a true fixed income investment, including the provision of liquidity, low volatility, and negative correlation with equities. This can be a powerful combination that builds much needed resilience into portfolios to help withstand the enduring market uncertainty. However, despite the low risk profile of high-grade bonds when compared to other asset classes, all investments carry risk. Please refer to the PDS for key risks.

Jamieson Coote Bonds (JCB) was formed in mid-2013 with the aim of producing superior risk-adjusted returns by giving investors access to a true defensive portfolio allocation to sovereign bonds. JCB has long advocated the role of fixed income in asset allocation as a way to protect and diversify portfolios.
It is important to understand that not all fixed income securities are created equal.
Investors need to be informed of how liquid and defensive their fixed income exposures are as it can have a substantial impact on performance, especially in times of market stress. Despite the higher volatility environment, JCB remains well positioned to service investor redemption requests without penalising our investors with increased sell spreads.
