The Fund aims to provide a high income with the potential for some capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the Bloomberg U.S. Corporate High Yield Bond 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 US high yield, unrated or non-investment grade, (equivalent to BB+ rated or lower) corporate bonds or preference shares, issued by companies, governments, public authorities, and international organisations or any other type of issuer. At least 51% of the Funds assets will be invested in bonds.
The Fund may also hold other assets including bonds of other types from any issuer, cash and money market instruments.
The Sub-Investment Adviser may use derivatives (complex financial instruments) 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 Bloomberg U.S. Corporate High Yield Bond 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 Sub-Investment Adviser 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.
