Fund objective
This ‘go-anywhere’ fund aims to deliver income and capital growth over the long term (that is, over five years or more) by investing across a broad range of fixed income assets, including bonds issued by governments and companies in developed nations and emerging markets. It can also invest in any currency. Exposure to these assets is gained through direct holdings and the use of derivatives. The ability to invest anywhere and in any currency gives the fund the freedom to select those assets that the fund manager believes are likely to benefit from the prevailing market trends and economic conditions.
