The objective of this fund is to provide a combination of income and growth (if the income is reinvested) by tracking the performance of the FTSE Actuaries British Government Index- Linked All Stocks Index.The fund will invest between 70% and 100% in bonds (a type of loan which pays interest) issued by the UK government (known as gilts). The fund's investments will closely match those that make up the Index. This Index consists of index-linked bonds which are issued by the UK Government. The return from these bonds is linked to changes in the rate of UK inflation. The gilts that the fund invests in will be investment grade bonds (rated as lower risk). Investment grade bonds are bonds that have achieved a higher credit rating from 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. 35% or more of the fund can be invested in bonds issued by the UK Government.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. 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 every six months (as interest).
