Fund objective
The Fund seeks to achieve total return through income and capital appreciation by investing in debt securities that are rated A- or higher by S&P or other agencies, or equivalent quality, including corporations and supranational organisations whose long-term debt is rated A- or higher by S&P or other agencies, or equivalent quality. The Fund may invest in securities issued or guaranteed by national governments, their agencies, instrumentalities and political sub-divisions but the Fund will only invest in corporate debt securities that are senior securities, meaning they have priority over other securities in a claim against or the bankruptcy of the issuer.
