Lincoln Unit Trust Managers has launched its first Corporate Bond unit trust to be managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management International (GSAM).
The product is designed to provide a regular income, but this can be reinvested. It is available through an Isa and offers an income yield of 7.11% and has a a gross redemption yield of 6.30%.
Until 30 April, Lincoln is offering lump sum investors a discount of 4.75%, making the initial charge 0.25%. The minimum lump sum investment is £500 and regular savers can invest a minimum of £50 per month.
Commission for IFAs is 3% with 0.5% renewal. The trust has about 90% in investment grade bonds, more than 65% of which is invested in issues with a Standard & Poor's rating of A or above. Only 9% is invested in non-investment grade bonds.
Helen Turner, head of unit trusts at Lincoln, said: "Our strategy is to target most of our resources into investment grade bonds and then concentrate on lower-rated bonds.
"By adding a small number of non-investment grade, high-yield bonds, we can add higher interest rates without significantly increasing the risk."
