Fund objective
The Fund aims to achieve a return on your investment, through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund's assets, which reflects the return of the Citigroup World Government Bond Index, the Fund's benchmark index. The Fund aims to invest as far as possible and practicable in the fixed income (FI) securities (such as bonds) that make up the benchmark index and comply with its credit rating requirements. If the credit ratings of the FI securities are downgraded, the Fund may continue to hold them until they cease to form part of the Index and it is practicable to sell them.
