Fund objective
This fund aims to provide long-term capital growth mainly through investment in collective investment schemes. The Fund aims to provide exposure to a combination of equities (which may include UK, overseas and emerging markets), bonds (this may include UK Government bonds, index-linked securities, other UK fixed interest securities, overseas bonds and high yield bonds) and property (which can be both in the UK and overseas). The Fund may also provide exposure to commodities and other alternative assets such as derivatives. This fund invests principally in a range of funds managed by, or operated within, the Lloyds Banking Group. High yield bonds are also known as Non-investment grade bonds. Non-investment grade bonds have not been awarded the minimum rating required to meet the investment grade rating. Therefore they are considered higher risk than bonds with a higher credit rating. Credit ratings indicate the likelihood that an issuer will be able to make their payments.
