    I think you are wise to say that it is only one month’s data to show Bonds slipping down the performance table, especially as it was the absolute opposite story in Q1 for 2018 where the top performing sector was a bond one-that of IA UK Gilts.

    In fact, Gilts and Cash were the only sectors showing a positive return in the first quarter compared to some equity funds that were down some 15% in the first 3 months of the year to date.

    We shouldn’t be surprised by that as the sell off in February (US jobs data and trade wars etc) seems to have forced investors to a flight for safety – cash and bonds

    Despite the apparent low attraction for bonds, in any kind of sell off, people still seem to diversify in things they know give them security of some capital – government backed bonds and dear old cash. Nothing changes!
