Fund Objective

Investment Objective The Sub-fund aims to outperform (after deduction of costs) the ICE Bank of America Merrill Lynch Sterling Non-Gilt over 10 Years Index by 0.5% per annum over rolling three-year periods. Investment Policy The Sub-fund will invest at least 80% in a portfolio of investment grade bonds issued by corporate issuers, public bodies and supranationals. The Sub-fund will be actively managed and is not constrained by the index. To the extent that the Sub-fund is not fully invested in such bonds, the Sub-fund may also invest in sub-investment grade bonds, government bonds, other transferable securities, money market instruments, deposits and cash. The bonds in which the Sub-fund invests will be denominated in sterling or denominated in other currencies and hedged back to sterling. The Sub-fund may use derivatives and currency forwards for both investment purposes and in the management of risk. No more than 10% in value of the property of the Fund will be invested in units of other collective investment schemes.
