Fund Objective

The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets. The Fund invests at least 70% of its total assets in fixed income securities which have a relatively low credit rating or are unrated. These may be denominated in various currencies and issued by governments and government agencies of, and companies and supranationals (e.g. the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) domiciled, or the main business of which is in, Europe. These include bonds and money market instruments (i.e. debt securities with short term maturities). The remainder may include investments outside of the asset classes and sector set out above and which are investment grade (i.e. meet a specified level of credit worthiness) at the time of purchase. The term Europe refers to all European countries including the United Kingdom, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union countries. The investment adviser (IA) may use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets) for investment purposes in order to achieve the investment objective of the Fund, and/or to reduce risk within the Fund’s portfolio, reduce investment costs and generate additional income. The Fund may, via FDIs, generate varying amounts of market leverage (i.e. where the Fund gains market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). The IA has discretion to select the Fund's investments and in doing so may take into consideration the Bloomberg Barclays Pan European High Yield 3% Issuer Constrained Index EUR Hedged. Recommendation: This Fund may not be appropriate for short-term investment. Your shares will be distributing (i.e. dividend income will be paid annually on the shares).
