What are senior bonds and their defensive attributes with Brooks Macdonald

Darius McDermott catches up with Jon Gumpel, manager of Elite Rated Brooks Macdonald Defensive Capital, to review how the fund fared in the October 2018 markets and where he’s finding opportunities when negative on both equity and bond markets.

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
