The objective of this fund is to provide a high income each month. The fund will invest in bonds (a type of loan which pays interest). These bonds will have a pre-set rate of income (either set at a fixed level or varying in a pre-determined way). The bonds that the fund invests in will be at least 80% investment grade (rated as lower risk). The fund may also invest up to 20% in sub-investment grade bonds (rated as higher risk). Investment and sub-investment grade bonds are bonds that have been given a credit rating by a rating agency. Credit ratings give an indication of how likely it is that the issuer of a bond will be able to pay back interest and the loan on time. The bonds that the fund invests in may be issued by companies, governments or other public bodies anywhere in the world. The fund may use derivatives (contracts which have a value linked to the price of another asset) to: • reduce risk or cost; or • generate additional capital or income with no, or an acceptably low, level of risk. The fund may also invest in cash, deposits or other authorised investment funds. If you hold accumulation units, income from investments held by the fund (interest) will be reinvested into the value of your units. If you hold distribution units, income from investments held by the fund will be paid out to you monthly (as interest). This fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years.
