Current extremely low and negative real yields on UK index-linked gilts, particularly for long-dated bonds, do not appear to have any fundamental justifications.
We find that for many investors concerned about rising interest rates, low duration strategies tend to offer a higher yield along with lower volatility than their duration-hedged counterparts.
The strategy can be a lower-duration alternative for real return investors, or an inflation-hedging opportunity for short-end fixed income investors.
