Equity and Bond
A mix of assets aiming to return monthly income and growth over time
Investments in shares are designed to provide income and capital growth over the long term, while additional investments in bonds and other assets provide some income and are designed to reduce volatility when compared with a pure equity fund.
David Smith and Ziad Gergi, Fund Managers
This fund aims to provide a monthly income and capital growth over the long term by investing in global equities and bonds. It’s designed for investors who want to leave the asset allocation and manager selection to experts. It could be a good core holding or be part of a diversified growth or income-focused portfolio.
The majority of your money will be invested in shares. You’ll also get a mix of bonds to reduce risk.
Overall, the fund is a medium-risk option. As with most investments, you should plan to hold it for at least five years.
You’ll get a mix of:
- Shares in larger companies mainly in the US, UK and Europe.
- A minimum of 30% in bonds and cash, which could help shelter your money in uncertain times.
- Some investments in emerging-markets, smaller companies, and high-yield bonds, which aim to boost the fund's growth potential, though they also increase risk.
Important - The value of this fund and the income from it can still fall, so you could get back less than you invested, especially over the short term. If you are unsure of the suitability of any investment for your circumstances please contact us for advice. Tax rules can change and benefits depend on individual circumstances.
Yearly charge based on an example £1,000 investment:
HL platform fee
HL platform fee
The ongoing charge is taken directly from the fund. This covers the management of the fund and all expenses other than transactional fees which are charged on top of this, these costs are incurred by all funds when shares are bought or sold and are reflected in the fund’s price.
The HL platform fee is our charge for looking after your investments which won't be over 0.45% per year. Both of these charges will be payable if you want to hold the fund with HL, amounting to a maximum of just 1.71% in total per year. The above example assumes no growth.
This fund is managed by Hargreaves Lansdown Fund Managers Ltd, part of the Hargreaves Lansdown Group. If you invest, HL will receive the fund's management charge, as well as the platform fee.
