Investment Objective

The objective of the Fund is to provide an attractive rate of return through investment primarily in sterling corporate and other sterling non-gilt fixed interest securities. A proportion of the Fund may also invest in non-sterling fixed interest securities as well as UK gilts. Any significant change in the investment objective and policies of a Fund may normally be made only with the approval of the FSA and the approval of the shareholders of the Company or, as the case may be, the relevant Fund by extraordinary resolution passed at a duly convened meeting.
