Fund Objective

The aim of the Fund is to provide income with the potential to grow the amount you invested.The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in higher rated corporate bonds (which are similar to a loan and pay a fixed or variable interest rate) that are priced in British pounds.The bonds the Fund invests in will have generally more than five years to maturity.Higher rated bonds (as defined by international agencies that provide such ratings) are considered safer than lower rated bonds but typically pay a lower income.However, the Fund makes active investment decisions and it is likely that additional positions will be held outside of the index.
