The Fund aims to generate a positive return (more than zero), after the deduction of costs and charges, over a rolling 12 month period. An absolute return is not guaranteed over this specific, or any other, time period, and consequently capital is in fact at risk.
Performance target: To outperform the ICE Bank of America ML 3 month Sterling Government Bill Index by at least 2% 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) bonds and asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities, issued by governments or companies. The Fund may invest directly or via derivatives (complex financial instruments).
The Fund may also invest in other assets including bonds of other types from any issuer, preference shares, 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 Fund will not invest more than 15% of its assets in high yield (non-investment grade) bonds and will never invest in bonds rated lower than B- or B3 (credit agency ratings), or if unrated deemed to be of a comparable quality by the investment manager.
The investment manager may use 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, to manage the Fund more efficiently, or to generate additional capital or income for the Fund.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the ICE Bank of America ML 3 month Sterling Government Bill Index as this forms the basis of the Fund’s performance target. The investment manager 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.
