Investment Objective

The OMW F&C Strategic Bond fund invests solely in the F&C Strategic Bond fund, a sub fund of F&C Investment Funds ICVC III a UK authorised Investment Company with Variable Capital, managed by F&C Fund Management Limited. The aim of the underlying fund is to deliver a return through a combination of income and capital growth primarily through investment in corporate bonds. In addition, the underlying fund will invest in bonds issued by other entities including sovereigns and supranationals. The underlying fund may be denominated in or hold assets in a currency other than Sterling. The performance of the fund may therefore rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations. The underlying fund invests in non-investment grade high-yielding bonds. The high yield reflects a higher risk of capital loss through default.
