Fund Objective

Aims to provide an attractive level of income together with some long-term capital growth. Invests primarily in the UK. The portfolio will obtain exposure to a combination of UK government and corporate bonds and other fixed interest securities, as well as company shares including preference shares and convertibles. Has the freedom to invest outside the fund's principal geographies, market sectors, industries or asset classes. Investments may be made in relation to bonds issued in currencies other than the fund’s denominated currency. Exposure to currencies may be hedged, for example with currency forward contracts. Can invest in relation to bonds issued by governments, companies and other bodies. The fund may make use of derivatives which are consistent with achieving the fund’s objective. This may result in “leverage” by which we mean a level of exposure which could expose the fund to the potential of greater gains or losses than would otherwise be the case. The fund has discretion in its choices of investments within its objectives and policies. Income is accumulated in the share price. Shares can usually be bought and sold each business day of the fund. This fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to sell their shares in the fund within 5 years. Investment in the fund should be regarded as a long-term investment.
