Please join co-managers, Mark Wharrier, Adam Avigdori andDavid Goldman for a live interactive BlackRock UK Income Fund Webcast update on the 12th October where they will discuss recent market movements and how we have been finding opportunities whilst navigating the ever changing landscape. They will review the fund’s performance over the past 2 years, specifically focusing on 2015, followed by an outlook for the remainder of the year.
Since the formation of the BlackRock UK Income team in September 2013, the Fund has returned 22%, significantly outperforming the FTSE All Share which has returned 6%. The IA Income Sector has returned 12% over the same period.*
The investment landscape continues to evolve with low interest rates and low inflation, many asset classes are at their all-time lowest yield levels. Growth rates are variable across the globe leading to divergent economic policy with the focus on interest rate rises in the US and UK while QE continues in Europe. Our flexible approach is well suited to this environment where market volatility can create investment opportunities.
Over the past two years the team have restructured and refined the Fund, delivering strong total return and a higher yield than that of the market.
