Fund Objective

The objective of the fund is to achieve a high level of income together with capital growth over the medium to long term. The fund invests primarily in European government and corporate fixed interest and other debt securities (which may be sub-investment grade or have no credit rating) and in shares of European companies. The fund may use derivatives (complex instruments) and other financially linked instruments in order to meet the fund’s investment objective and to reduce risk, minimise costs and/or generate additional capital or income. The fund is actively managed within its objectives and is not constrained by a benchmark.
