L&G All Stocks Index-Linked Gilt Index – Neutral

Jose Garcia-Zarate

Investors simply looking for a low-cost, expertly managed and tightly-tracking index fund to gain all-maturity exposure to the market of UK government inflation-protected bonds, can be confident that this fund fits the bill. Ultimately, however, we must conclude that the very high duration of the underlying market means that the lack of flexibility of a passive approach can prove a distinct disadvantage at times. The fund may do well relative to investment category peers – both passive and active – in isolated periods, but over the long term this is unlikely to translate into above-average returns. In the context of the Morningstar Analyst Rating framework, this befits a Neutral qualification.
