Fund objective
To give an income, or growth (when income is kept in the fund) by investing mainly in funds such as collective investment schemes.The fund will provide exposure generally to fixed interest securities (including UK government bonds, other UK fixed interest securities and overseas high yield bonds). The fund will also provide exposure to equities (including UK and overseas equities), property, commodities and other asset classes. Exposure will be mainly to UK investments but with a significant proportion overseas.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.
