Fund objective
The Fund aims to achieve positive returns on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets over a rolling three year period. The Fund seeks to gain at least 70% of any market exposure to fixed income (FI) securities and FI-related securities issued by, or giving exposure to, governments, government agencies, companies and supranationals worldwide. This is achieved by investing at least 70% of its total assets in FI securities, FI-related securities, currency forwards and where appropriate, deposits and cash. FI securities include bonds as well as money market instruments. FI-related securities include financial derivative instruments (FDIs). A currency forward is a type of FDI which locks in the price at which an entity can buy or sell a currency at a future date. No more than 40% of the Fund’s assets may be invested in FI securities which have a relatively low credit rating or which are unrated. The remainder will include investments which are investment grade at the time of purchase.
