Investment Objective

The fund aims to deliver income and capital growth by investing in a broad range of fixed income securities, wherever the manager sees the greatest opportunities. The manager may also hold up to 20% of the portfolio in company shares when he believes they offer better value than bonds. Exposure to these assets is gained through physical holdings and the use of derivatives. An in-house team of independent credit analysts assists the fund manager in the selection of individual bond issues.
