Where does GCI sit within the income alternatives?

View our Risk vs Return overview >

At GCI our measure of ‘risk’ is the volatility of assets; with term deposits with low volatility compared to growth assets or higher risk assets with higher volatility such as equities.

Since listing back in May 2018, the asset values of GCI have been rock solid despite:

  • Investment market volatility in Q 4 2018 and
  • House prices falling in 2018

That is because GCI invests in ‘secured’ RMBS bonds which are structured to be loss remote. Plus importantly the average maturity of the underlying asset is less than 2 years.
