Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in convertible securities issued by companies worldwide.

As such, the manager believes investors can gain exposure to global equity markets with the defensive benefits and less volatile characteristics of a bond investment.The fund may invest in excess of 50% of its assets in bonds that have a below investment grade credit rating (as measured by Standard & Poor's or any equivalent grade of other credit rating agencies for rated bonds and implied Schroders ratings for non-rated bonds).The fund may use derivatives with the aim of achieving investment gains, reducing risk or managing the fund more efficiently.
