M&G Optimal Income Fund - Re-orienting towards better value

We believe the global economic recovery remains on track. Leading indicators suggest that a healthy labour market should drive wage growth.

That challenge has become increasingly evident this year. Central banks look to unwind a decade of loose monetary policy, triggering increased uncertainty and volatility across asset classes and markets globally.
