Fund Objective

The Fund aims to provide income with potential for capital growth over the long term (5 years or more). 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 Fund's 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 London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.

Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
