Vanguard Global Bond Index Fund GBP Hedged Accumulation

This highly diversified fund gives exposure to more than 7,300 bonds with the US, Japan, Canada, France and Germany being the highest weighted countries. Investors can use it as a ‘one-stop shop’ for developed market investment-grade-rated fixed-income exposure. The fund is currency hedged into Sterling, which takes out the currency volatility for UK investors, which we think is a good feature for a beginner.
