Square Mile Investment Consulting & Research has added the TwentyFour Corporate Bond fund to its Academy of Funds, awarding it an A-rating.

The Academy of Funds is a dedicated section within Square Mile's website, where advisers can access analysis on all recommended funds. Each fund carries a rating - A, AA, AAA, R or P+ - as a mark of quality and a reflection of the level of conviction Square Mile's team of analysts has in a fund's ability to deliver on expectations.

Commenting on the TwentyFour Corporate Bond Fund, Senior Investment Research Analyst at Square Mile, Amaya Assan, said:

"We are pleased to introduce the TwentyFour Corporate Bond fund to our Academy of Funds with an A-rating. Managed by the experienced Chris Bowie, who has been running fixed income funds for over 20 years, together with Gordon Shannon, the fund also has access to the highly regarded fixed income team at TwentyFour Asset Management and aims to deliver an income through investments into corporate bonds. The managers will use the firm's investment process for idea generation in addition to the expertise they have built over the years. The fund is run in a sensible manner with a strong focus on identifying the best risk-adjusted returns in the universe. Overall, we see this fund as a solid, core option for investors who wish to access an income stream through a portfolio of predominantly investment grade corporate bonds run by a capable management team."
