The Fund aims to provide a return, from a combination of income and capital growth, while seeking to limit losses to capital (although not guaranteed).
Performance target: To outperform the FTSE 3-Month US Treasury Bill Index by at least 3% per annum, before the deduction of charges, over any 5 year period.
The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in a global portfolio of bonds of any quality, including high yield/non-investment grade and unrated bonds, issued by companies or governments, asset-backed and mortgage backed securities.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including cash and money market instruments. In certain market conditions, the Fund may invest more than 35% of its assets in government bonds issued by any one body.
The Sub-Investment Adviser makes extensive use of derivatives (complex financial instruments), including total return swaps, with the aim of making investment gains in line with the Fund's objective, to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the FTSE 3-Month US Treasury Bill Index as this forms the basis of the Fund's performance target. The Sub-Investment Adviser has a high degree of freedom to choose individual investments for the Fund.
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.
