Fund Objective

The Fund aims to provide income and preserve the original value of your investment, however, this is not guaranteed. The Fund is actively managed, and looks to provide income returns broadly in line with the 1 Month GBP London Interbank Bid Rate (LIBID), before charges are deducted. LIBID is the indicative interest rate that banks expect to pay when borrowing from each other in the London Interbank Market. It is widely used by short-term money market funds to provide a benchmark against which performance can be compared over time. The Fund will invest in short-term assets of high credit quality from issuers that have received a favourable assessment in accordance with credit quality assessment procedures adopted by the Fund. These investments may include UK Government securities (including Treasury bills) with a maturity of 184 days or less, sterling denominated cash deposits and certificates of deposit. In addition, up to 50% of the Fund may be invested in sterling denominated commercial paper, also with a maturity of 184 days, or less. Investment in other short-term money market funds is permitted, but limited in total to 10% of the Fund value. The Fund is a variable net asset value short term money market fund.
