Over the week, gilt funds have even outperformed their growth fund counterparts as the latter have been a victim of increasing volatility in the stock market. What is even more noteworthy is that gilt funds in our sample have posted a rise over the last 12 months, unlike growth funds which have mostly slumped in this period.

Steady gilt prices is an indication of a favourable outlook on the interest rate scenario. It implies that investors do not see an interest rate hike in the offing, and this has kept bond yields at lower levels.
