Fund objective
The fund aims to provide a level of income, before charges, above that available on UK Government bonds by investing predominantly in investment grade bonds. The fund is actively managed by our investment teams who may invest in a wide range of bonds (e.g. corporate bonds including sub investment grade bonds, overseas bonds, index-linked bonds, floating rate notes (FRNs) and asset backed securities (ABSs) and/or money market instruments) in order to take advantage of opportunities they have identified and which meet our strict ethical criteria. These criteria are agreed with the Standard Life Ethical Funds Advisory Group and may be amended from time to time if considered appropriate. The fund manager will exclude companies which fail to meet the ethical criteria whilst seeking to include companies whose business activities are regarded as making a positive contribution to society.
