Fixed Interest Funds

Charity-specific funds


These funds invest in bonds and other fixed interest securities, and typically pay a fixed rate of interest. They’re a popular choice for investors looking for a regular income or diversification.

The value of investments may fall as well as rise. You may not get back the full amount that you originally invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. There is no guarantee about the level of capital or income returns that will be generated.


The funds featured below are brought to you by fund managers which specialise in investments that appeal to charities, and invest in a variety of strategies, risk profiles and assets.
