Aviva Investors has launched the Aviva Investors Core Aggregate Fixed Income and the Aviva Investors High Yield Bond funds.
The Core Aggregate fund seeks to exceed the total return of the broad, U.S. dollar-denominated investment grade bond market. This includes investment-grade government bonds, investment-trade corporate bonds, mortgage pass-through securities, commercial mortgage-backed securities and asset-backed securities.
The High Yield fund seeks to produce a high total return through high income and capital appreciation by investing in high-yield bonds issued by U.S. and foreign companies.
Both funds are primarily aimed at institutional investors, with a minimum initial investment of $1 million.
