Fund Objective

Investment Objective The Sub-fund aims to produce monthly income. Opportunities for capital growth are also sought, subject to prevailing market conditions. Investment Policy The Sub-fund will invest at least 80% in a diversified portfolio of (1) investment grade and (2) sub-investment grade bonds, issued by corporate issuers, public bodies and supranationals, and (3) developed market government bonds. The Sub-fund will be actively managed through bond selection and strategic asset allocation. To the extent that the Sub-fund is not fully invested in such bonds, the Sub-fund may also invest in other bonds, shares, 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.
