The Fund aims to provide a return, from a combination of income and capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Corporate Bond Hedged USD Index by 1.25% 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 investment grade (equivalent to BBB rated or higher) corporate bonds, issued by companies and issuers. Up to 20% may be invested in developing markets.
The Fund may also hold other assets including other types of bonds (including convertible bonds), preference shares, cash and money market instruments.
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 or to manage the Fund more efficiently.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Corporate Bond Hedged USD Index, which is broadly representative of the bonds in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund's performance target. The investment manager has discretion to choose investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index, but at times the Fund may hold investments similar to the index.
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.
