The Fund aims to provide a return, from a combination of income and capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the Euro Base Rate by at least 2% per annum, before the deduction of charges, over any 5 year period.
The Fund invests in bonds of any quality, including high yield (non-investment grade) bonds, of governments, companies or any other type of issuer in any country. The Fund may invest up to 30% of its assets in asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities (ABS/MBS), including up to 10% of which may be high yield (non-investment grade, equivalent to BB+ rated or lower).
The Fund 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 may also invest in other assets including contingent convertible bonds (CoCos), loans, cash and money market instruments.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the Euro Base Rate, as this forms the basis of the Fund’s performance target. The investment manager has complete discretion to choose investments for the Fund and is not constrained by a benchmark.
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.
