The fund seeks to maximise total return (the combination of income and growth of capital), while generating a high level of income, which may vary over time. The fund invests mainly in floating rate notes (FRNs), which are bonds paying a variable coupon that is adjusted in line with changes in interest rates. The fund focuses on FRNs issued by companies with a low credit rating, which typically pay higher levels of interest to compensate investors for the greater risk of default. Part of the fund may be invested in other fixed income assets, such as government bonds. Asset exposure is gained through physical holdings and the use of derivatives.
