Liontrust, a specialist fund management company, was launched in 1995 and has won a number of awards over the years, the latest of which is Morningstar’s Best UK Equity Fund 2019. Liontrust offers a wide variety of global funds and portfolios, one of which is the Liontrust GF High Yield Bond Fund, which is managed by Donald Phillips and Phil Milburn, with assistance from David Roberts. The fund is distributed locally through the MeDirect branch network and available on our MeDirect online platform.
