Fund objective
The fund aims to achieve long term growth through investing predominantly in sovereign bonds issued in OECD member countries. Returns from the fund will be both through the reinvestment of income and capital gains. The fund is actively managed by our investment team to take advantage of the opportunities they have identified. The value of investments within the fund can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed – you may get back less than you pay in. The fund may use derivatives for the purpose of efficient portfolio management or to meet its investment objective if this is permitted and appropriate. The value of overseas assets held in the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
