Back in April SSGA launched 10 leveraged gilt funds to kick-start its provision of LDI strategies and these latest launches complete the planned product build-out in the UK.

The group said its LDI solutions are aimed at offering institutional investors a way to extend inflation and interest rate protection in their liability-matching portfolios.

It added that the leveraged nature of the new funds helps provide further flexibility for investors by allowing a smaller initial investment and thereby freeing capital to allocate to their portfolio’s growth areas.

Susan Raynes, head of UK, Middle East and Africa at SSGA, said: "Our completed set of funds provides a strong foundation to offer clients a comprehensive and flexible solution for managing their liabilities.

"These funds, alongside our existing set of physical bond strategies and those leveraged funds we launched earlier in the year, provide extra flexibility for schemes so that they can focus on building asset growth in line with overall investment objectives."
