Fund objective
The objective is to provide an absolute return irrespective of bond market direction over a 12 month period. A positive return is not guaranteed over this or any time period. The Manager seeks to achieve this by investing in a diversified spread of corporate bonds (securities that pay either a fixed or variable level of income on a periodic basis and generally repay a specified amount at a pre-determined date) issued by companies and other non-governmental organisations from the major corporate bond markets. While the Manager will invest at least two thirds of its total assets in corporate bonds, it may also invest in other fixed and variable interest rate securities issued by governments and supranationals and derivative contracts. Derivatives may be used for investment purposes to hedge investment risk, replicate investment positions and generate additional return in a risk controlled manner. This may involve the use of currency forward contracts, exchange traded futures, interest rate and inflation swaps, and single name and index credit default swaps. Derivatives may also be used for the purpose of efficient portfolio management. The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities, collective investment schemes, money market instruments, deposits, cash and near cash and forward transactions. Derivatives can also be used to obtain market exposure in excess of the net asset value of the Fund. The Fund may generate varying amount of market leverage at different times.
