Having now met with the new management team on the Standard Life Investments Global Index Linked Bond and the Standard Life Investments Short Duration Global Index Linked Bond funds, we are pleased to reinstate our 'A' ratings for both these funds.

Essentially we retain our conviction in the fund's management team with Adam Skerry continuing in his co-manager role on the fund and Tom Walker replacing Katy Forbes as the second co-manager on the fund. Katy Forbes will continue to work closely with the managers of these funds from her new position on the multi asset investment team.
