Investment Objective

The Fund aims to provide a total return (the combination of capital growth and income). At least 80% of the Fund is invested in investment grade corporate bonds (including variable rate securities and fixed income securities). The Fund invests in securities which on aggregate produce a low portfolio duration, in order to limit the effect of interest rate movements on the Fund’s capital value. These securities may be issued anywhere in the world. The Fund aims to hedge non-GBP assets to GBP. Derivatives can be used to meet the Fund’s investment objective and for efficient portfolio management. The Fund may also invest in other debt securities (including government and public securities denominated in any currency), collective investment schemes, other transferable securities, cash, near cash, other money market securities, warrants, and other derivative instruments.
