The aim of the Fund is to provide both income and the potential to grow the amount you invested. The Fund's investments aim to support socially beneficial activities and developments. At least two-thirds of the assets of the Fund will be in bonds that are issued in the UK. The Fund invests in bonds (which are similar to a loan and pay a fixed or variable interest rate) issued by companies, governments, voluntary organisations and/or charities that engage in socially beneficial activities and development. Investments are assessed by the fund manager by reference to a social assessment methodology developed by Big Issue Invest and the Management Company. This assessment is reviewed at least quarterly by an advisory committee with two-thirds of its members being nominated by Big Issue Invest. The Fund may also invest in asset classes and instruments different from those stated above.
