Following the maturity of a structured note the proceeds were invested into a new issue. This has a UK equity index as its underlying and a maximum duration of 8 years. To mature with a gain on any of its anniversaries it requires the index to be at or above its initial strike level, paying a coupon of 11.55% simple for each year that it is in force. Within the Fund the strongest performer was the Jupiter Gold & Silver fund, benefitting from the general rise in commodity prices, along with the inflation protection which precious metals can provide. They particularly tend to perform well when real yields on bonds are negative.
The Fund posted a return of 1.92% for March, underperforming the sector average return of 2.98%, due to its more defensive positioning in terms of equity allocation.
