The Fund aims to provide a regular income while aiming to preserve the initial capital invested over the Term. The Fund is designed to be held until the end of the Term and investors should be prepared to remain invested until such date. The income amount or capital value is not guaranteed. The value of the shares at the end of the Term may be less than the value at the time of investment because of the Fund’s distribution policy or market movements.
The Fund invests at least 75% of its net asset value in global Investment Grade corporate bonds (equivalent to BBB rated or higher). The Fund may invest up to 5% in the securities of other Eligible Collective Investment Schemes, up to 25% in high yield (non-investment grade) bonds issues by companies or preference shares (of which up to 5% are bonds issues by companies or preference shares from Developing Markets) and up to 5% in unrated bonds issues by companies. The Fund may also invest in high yield (non-Investment Grade) bonds, government bonds, municipal bonds, commercial paper, certificates of deposit and cash. The Fund may invest up to 10% of its net asset value in agency MBS (which does not include CMOs). The Fund will not invest in contingent convertible bonds. The investment manager may use derivatives (complex financial instruments) to reduce risk, to manage the Fund more efficiently, or to generate additional capital or income for the Fund as well as for investment purposes. The Fund is managed on a buy and maintain basis without reference to a benchmark. The Sub- Investment Adviser has a high degree of freedom to choose investments for the Fund but will aim to keep activity in the portfolio to a low level. During the Subscription Period, the Fund can hold up to 100% of its net assets in cash or cash equivalents, such as Money Market Instruments.
The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
Potential investors must read the prospectus, and where relevant, the key investor information document before investing.
