The Fund aims to provide income with potential for long term capital growth. It looks to outperform a composite index over rolling 3-year periods, after the deduction of charges. This composite index comprises:
· 56% Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate ex GBP (GBP Hedged) Index,
· 24% Bloomberg Barclays Sterling Aggregate Index,
· 10% MSCI ACWI ex UK Index,
· 5% FTSE All-Share Index,
· 5% Sterling Overnight Index Average (SONIA)
The Fund is actively managed, and invests at least 80% of its assets in other funds. The Fund usually invests in other Threadneedle funds, however, funds managed by companies outside the Threadneedle group may also be held, when this is considered appropriate. These funds may invest worldwide. The Fund focuses on investment in funds providing exposure to bonds (including corporate and government bonds), and to a lesser extent, funds investing in equities (company shares). The balance of the exposure between these different asset types may vary over time, however, equity exposure will usually not exceed 20% of the Funds value, under normal market conditions.
The Fund may also hold money market instruments, deposits, cash, and near cash.
Derivatives may be used with the aim of reducing risk or managing the Fund more efficiently, and up to 20% of the value of the Fund may be invested in funds that use derivatives for investment purposes.
The composite index is representative of the Funds investment exposure, and provides a suitably weighted target benchmark of global investment grade bonds (hedged to sterling), investment grade sterling-denominated bonds, global equities (excluding the UK), UK equities, and cash, against which Fund performance can be evaluated over time.
