The fund aims to provide long term growth from a combination of income and capital growth by investing predominantly in sovereign-issued and corporate inflation-linked bonds. The fund is actively managed by our investment team who may also invest in other bonds (such as conventional government bonds and corporate bonds) to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Non-sterling denominated assets will typically be hedged back to sterling.
