Overview

ABOUT THIS FUND

A world bond fund focusing on developed markets that seeks total return through current income and capital appreciation. The Fund makes strategic asset allocation decisions between countries, fixed income asset classes, sectors and credit ratings.

WHY INVEST IN THIS FUND

Active Asset Allocation Approach
We believe asset allocation is the primary driver of returns. Specifically, we actively manage the Fund’s duration position and credit exposure based on where we believe we are in the economic cycle.

Designed for Attractive Total Return
The Fund’s flexibility allows it to source return from a wide range of global fixed income securities. In addition, we favor sensible income from large, non-cyclical businesses that are likely to continue paying their coupons in the years to come.

Aims to Exploit Opportunities
We believe divergent central bank policy has created an opportunity for us to exploit market inefficiencies. The portfolio seeks to take advantage of these opportunities across developed markets and to avoid currency bets.
