OBJECTIVE AND INVESTMENT POLICY
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 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 investment manager 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 investment manager has a high degree of freedom to choose individual investments for the Fund.
