Fund objective
The Fund aims to generate income returns with the prospect of capital growth. The Fund invests mainly in Sterling denominated non-government fixed income securities (such as bonds) that are investment grade (i.e. meet a specified level of creditworthiness) at the time of purchase. However, the Fund will invest in the full range of FI securities which may include investments with a relatively low credit rating or which are unrated.
