Fund objective
To give either an income or growth (when income is kept within the fund). To do so by investing predominantly in corporate bonds and other fixed interest securities issued by companies and governments operating in the USA, the UK and Europe. The majority of the fund will be in non-investment grade bonds with a higher than average risk.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.
