Email of the day on bond investing:

Interested in your investment purchase of DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund. as a long term subscriber I’ve now moved into another investment age whereby I am now an income & growth investor and the timing of your purchase appears to be potentially beneficial.

I have checked with a number of UK online investment portals and they do not appear to offer access to this closed end fund and therefore my question is whether you accessed this via a US trading platform or direct?

Any help will be appreciated.

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this question which may be of interest to the Collective. Growing up in Ireland in the last 1970s and early 1980s interest rates were very high. My grandmother used to buy national savings certs for all her grandchildren. They automatically rolled over the interest at maturity. As a teenager, I cashed them in and found they had risen by over 300%. That taught me the simple lesson. Buying bonds when rates are high and before inflation peaks is very attractive.
