State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), the investment management business of State Street Corporation (NYSE:STT), has enhanced its liability driven investing (LDI) strategies with the launch of 10 leveraged gilt funds.

The new funds funds are aimed at offering pension schemes and institutional investors a way to extend inflation- and interest-rate protection in their liability-matching portfolios. The leveraged nature of these funds help provide further flexibility for schemes by allowing a smaller initial investment, thereby freeing capital to allocate according to a portfolio’s growth objectives.“These new funds are part of a broader product build-out of our LDI offering. Combined with the existing set of physical bond strategies, including single stock bond funds, SSgA now offers pensions schemes and institutional investors exceptional breadth for extending inflation- and interest-rate protection on their liability-matching portfolios. The leveraged funds provide extra flexibility for schemes to focus on building asset growth in line with their overall investment objectives,” says Susan Raynes, head of the UK, Middle East and Africa at SSgA.

The Single Stock and Leveraged Gilt funds can be used in tailored combinations to suit the objectives and risk tolerances of a scheme. They complement SSgA’s conventional bond index funds, enabling investors to structure stable and cost-effective hedging portfolios.
