Fund objective
The fund aims to provide a return from a combination of income and capital growth investing mainly in bonds including government and corporate bonds, sub investment grade bonds, emerging market bonds and inflation linked bonds issued anywhere in the world. The fund is actively managed by our investment teams who may also invest a proportion of the fund's assets in other bonds, derivatives and/or money market instruments to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Past performance is not a guide to future returns and future returns are not guaranteed. The price of assets and the income from them may go down as well as up and cannot be guaranteed; an investor may receive back less than their original investment. The fund will routinely use derivatives to reduce risk or cost, or to generate additional capital or income at low risk. Usage of derivatives is monitored to ensure that the fund is not exposed to excessive or unintended risks. The value of assets held within the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
