Fund objective
The fund is designed to provide protection from the effects of inflation by generating a total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) consistent with or greater than the rate of European inflation over any three- to five-year period. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve its objective over any period. The fund is mainly invested in inflation-linked bonds issued by companies with a high credit quality, with a significant part of this investment expected to be gained through the use of derivatives combined with index-linked government bonds. It may also invest in non-inflation linked assets that would be expected to perform well in an inflationary environment.
