Fund objective
To give long-term capital growth by investing mainly in funds such as collective investment schemes.The fund will provide exposure to equities (including UK, overseas and emerging markets equities) balanced mainly with fixed interest securities (including UK fixed interest securities and overseas high yield bonds). The fund will also provide exposure to property, commodities and other asset classes. Exposure will be to both UK and overseas markets.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.
