The fund manager will typically invest in the shares and bonds of companies that can be purchased at an attractive valuation.

It is important to remember that the actual asset allocation of the Fund will depend on market conditions.Use of BenchmarkThe Fund is managed with reference to the FTSE All-Share Index and Markit iBoxx GBP Corporates Index. The FTSE All-Share Index and Markit iBoxx GBP Corporates Index are considered as part of our investment risk monitoring process, to check that the overall level of risk taken by the fund manager is not inconsistent with the UK equities market and sterling corporate bond market.The performance of the Fund is therefore shown against the performance of a combined benchmark consisting of a weighting of 70% FTSE All-Share Index and 30% Markit iBoxx GBP Corporates Index. The income of the Fund is compared to the income of the FTSE All-Share Index over three-year periods. The performance of the Fund may also be shown against the performance of the Investment Association UK Equity & Bond sector for comparison purposes.The FTSE All-Share Index and Markit iBoxx GBP Corporates Index have been selected to be used as a combined benchmark for performance comparison and risk measurement because they are representative of the companies and bonds in which the Fund may invest. The Investment Association UK Equity & Bond sector has been selected as a benchmark for performance comparison because it consists of funds similar to the Fund. Many funds sold in the UK are grouped into sectors by the Investment Association (the trade body that represents UK investment managers), to help investors to compare funds with broadly similar characteristics.Use of DerivativesThe Fund may invest in exchange traded and over-the-counter derivatives in accordance with Part D of Appendix 3. Although the Fund has the ability to use currency forward contracts or other derivative instruments to hedge against movements in the rate of exchange between sterling and other currencies in which the Fund's assets may be denominated, the Fund does not currently do so.
