UBS Classic Bond Funds offer investors the opportunity to participate in a broadly diversified portfolio of mainly investment-grade bonds. These investment products aim to generate a regular income flow. There is a choice of funds in all major currencies and maturity structures, as well as global and corporate bond fund. UBS Classic Bond Funds are an ideal building block for fixed income portfolios or for the fixed income component of balanced portfolios.
The actively managed fund gains currency exposure as its major return driver by investing in unhedged bonds while focusing on sovereigns with 1- to 3-year maturities.
The fund invests in markets from smaller developed higher-quality countries.
The fund carefully selects within the investment universe of money market instruments, government and quasi-government bonds, and opportunistically adds high-quality corporate bonds (rating A or higher).
Investors can limit their investments’ exposure to the traditional reserve currencies (US dollar, euro, Japanese yen, British pound) through diversification across other currencies from smaller developed and fiscally sound markets.
Investors have a portfolio of fixed-income instruments with relatively short duration.
Investors can rely on an experienced and dedicated team of specialists, who exploit UBS’s global pool of investment knowledge to the full.
Changes in interest rates have an effect on the value of the portfolio. This requires corresponding risk tolerance and capacity. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The fund can use derivatives, which may result in additional risks (particularly counterparty risk).
