Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide a significantly higher level of income than that available on gilts by investing mainly in sterling and euro denominated sub-investment grade corporate bonds. The fund is actively managed by our investment team who may also invest in other bonds (such as investment grade corporate bonds and government bonds) to try to take advantage of the opportunities they have identified. Past performance is not a guide to future returns and future returns are not guaranteed. The price of assets and the income from them may go down as well as up and cannot be guaranteed; an investor may receive back less than their original investment. The fund will routinely use derivatives to reduce risk or cost, or to generate additional capital or income at low risk. Usage of derivatives is monitored to ensure that the fund is not exposed to excessive or unintended risks. The value of assets held within the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
