Living up to expectations

23 Feb, 2024 | Return|

"We get this really nice balance between a big allocation to bonds, nice and steady, less volatile returns, and then greater exposure to some of the more interesting, high growth areas of the equity market."

Having recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Aegon Diversified Monthly Income fund, the fund's manager, Vincent McEntegart, joined Jock Glover on this week's episode to share what he has learned over the last decade, and why investor expectations keep him up at night. In this 20-minute episode, Vincent and Jock also discuss how the shift in the bond markets is reflected in the portfolio, and why this has opened the door to some interesting equity exposure.
