The Fund seeks to provide a total return and to match a benchmark that is designed to move in line with annuity prices with the aim of reducing the annuity conversion risk for preretirement funds. The Fund will invest predominantly in gilts and inflation-linked gilts and use interest rate, inflation and gilt derivatives designed to reduce the impact of adverse changes in average annuity rates as a result of changes in interest rates.
