Fund objective
The objective of this fund is to provide a combination of income and growth.The fund will invest between 80% and 100% in bonds (a type of loan which pays interest) and/or derivatives (contracts which have a value linked to the price of another asset) and/or cash. The bonds may have a fixed or variable rate of income. The bonds that the fund invests in may be investment grade (rated as lower risk) or sub-investment grade (rated as higher risk). Investment and sub-investment grade bonds are bonds that have been given a credit rating by a rating agency. Credit ratings give an indication of how likely it is that the issuer of a bond will be able to pay back interest and the loan on time. The bonds held may be issued by companies or governments and may be issued in the UK or overseas. 35% or more of the fund can be invested in bonds issued by the government of any one of various countries or by any one of various international organisations. For more information, please see the fund's Prospectus. The fund may use derivatives (contracts which have a value linked to the price of another asset) to: • reduce risk or cost; or • generate additional capital or income with no, or an acceptably low, level of risk. The fund may also use derivatives for investment purposes to: • enhance the performance of the fund; • manage the effect of changes in interest rates; • manage the effect of changes in exchange rates with Sterling, removing 90% or more of this exchange rate risk. The fund may also invest in other funds and/or company shares. If you hold accumulation units, income received by the fund (interest) will be reinvested into the value of your units. If you hold distribution units, income from investments held by the fund will be paid out to you every three months (as interest). You can buy or sell units in this fund on any working day. You need to contact us with your instruction before 12 noon. This is the time we calculate unit prices for this fund. If you contact us after 12 noon, the units will be bought or sold at the next working day's price. This fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years. The fund may be appropriate if you are looking for a fund that has the flexibility to vary how much it invests at any time in lower risk investment grade bonds or higher risk subinvestment grade bonds, and can use derivatives to enhance performance.

Risk statistics
Alpha
?Alpha is a measure of a fund's over- or under-performance by comparison to its benchmark. If the Alpha is 5, the fund has outperformed its benchmark by 5%; so the greater the Alpha, the greater the outperformance.
-0.72
Beta
?Beta estimates a fund's volatility by comparison to that of its benchmark. A fund with a beta close to 1 means that the fund will move generally in line with the benchmark. Higher than 1 and the fund is more volatile than the benchmark and vice versa.
0.22
Sharpe
?This commonly-used measure calculates the level of return over and above the return of a notional risk-free investment, such as cash. The difference in returns is then divided by the fund's volatility. The resulting ratio is an indication of the amount of excess return generated per unit of risk.
-0
Volatility
?Volatility (or standard deviation), when applied to an investment fund, expresses its risk. It shows how widely a range of returns varied from the fund's average return over a particular period. For example, if a fund had an average return of 5%, and its volatility was 15, this would mean that the range of its returns over the period had swung between +20% and -10%.
2.74
Tracking error
?This measures the standard deviation of a fund's excess returns over the returns of an index or benchmark portfolio. As such, it can be an indication of 'riskiness' in the manager's investment style. A Tracking Error below 2 suggests a passive approach. At 3 and above the the manager will be deploying a more active investment style.
3.72
Information ratio
?This is a useful risk-adjusted measure of actively managed fund performance. It is calculated by deducting the returns of the fund's benchmark from the fund's overall returns, then dividing the result by its tracking error. The higher the Information Ratio the better. It is generally considered that a figure of 0.5 reflects a good performance, 0.75 very good, and 1.00 outstanding.
-1.05
R-Squared
?An indication of how closely correlated a fund is to an index or a benchmark. Values for R-Squared range between 0 and 1, with 0 indicating no correlation at all and 1 showing a perfect match. Values upwards of 0.7 suggest that the fund's behaviour is increasingly linked to its benchmark.
