Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

Objective The fund's goal is to achieve income and growth of the fund's value. Investment Policy B The fund invests in bonds issued by various governments. B The fund only buys bonds that are highly rated at the time of purchase. B The fund may invest in bonds issued in various currencies. B The fund may invest up to 20% in bonds that are not represented in the FTSE World Government Bond Index but are still highly rated at the time of purchase. B The fund may invest in derivatives (financial instruments whose value is derived from the value of other assets), to help try to achieve the fund's objective as well as to reduce risk or cost or to generate additional growth or income for the fund. Share Class Policy B For this share class, the investment manager intends to index hedge "(IH)" the currency exposure, which means that the share class will retain a degree of exposure to the currencies that are significant to the fund's investment strategy in comparison to the currencies of the relevant index. Benchmark: FTSE World Government Bond Index Manager's Discretion: The fund is actively managed, and the investment manager has discretion in selecting investments within the fund's objective and investment policies. The investment manager seeks to provide an average annualised return for the fund, on a gross basis over rolling 5- year periods, equal to the return of the benchmark plus 2%. There is no guarantee that the investment manager will meet its target, and the targeted return does not take into account the fees charged, which will reduce the fund's return. Fund's Base Currency: US Dollar Share Class Currency: Pound Sterling Transaction Costs: The fund bears costs in buying and selling investments, which may have a material impact on the fund's performance. Dealing Frequency: You can buy, sell and switch your shares on each day that the New York Stock Exchange is open for business. Minimum Initial Investment: For this share class the minimum initial investment is GBP 1,000. Treatment of Income: For this share class all, or some portion of, net income is declared and paid semi-annually to shareholders.
