Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

Objective: to provide a combination of capital growth and income. Policy: invests at least two thirds in a wide range of investment grade (lower risk) bonds and high yield (higher risk) bonds issued by companies and governments worldwide. The Fund may also invest in cash, deposits and money market instruments (a form of debt security). The Fund is actively managed. The Fund may invest in emerging markets. In investment terms, this means those economies that are still developing. Within the limits set out above, the Fund has discretion in its choice of investments and is not restricted by market sector. It may also hold a limited range of other investments and it is not constrained by any benchmark or index. The Fund may use derivatives (financial contracts whose value is linked to an underlying asset) for investment purposes, to benefit from changes in the price of an underlying asset without actually owning it. The Fund may use investment techniques to manage risks and costs. These techniques include 'hedging' (using derivatives and other financial contracts to reduce the risk associated with: (i) making investments in other currencies: or (ii) interest rates changing). Up to 50% of the Fund may not be 'hedged' i.e. the Fund is exposed to the risks of investing in another currency for this portion. Comparator Benchmarks: Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Total Return Index (USD Hedged). Comparison against this index will allow investors to compare the Fund's performance against that of a representative but not identical universe of the Fund's potential investments. Comparison against this index will also allow investors to judge the active nature of the Fund against performance of an index which could reflect the performance of equivalent passive funds. Lipper Global Bond Global USD Peer Group. Comparison of the Fund against this Peer Group will give investors an indication of how the Fund is performing compared with Funds investing in a similar but not identical investment universe and income orientation. The composition of this peer group is maintained externally and the investment manager makes no guarantees to its accuracy.
