The fund aims to maximise total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) by investing mainly in investment grade, or high quality, corporate bonds from around the world, denominated in any currency. The fund manager may also hold up to 20% of the portfolio in other global fixed income investments. Exposure to these assets is gained through physical holdings and the use of derivatives. The fund manager’s economic outlook will determine the portfolio’s overall positioning, while an in-house team of independent credit analysts assists in the selection of individual bond issues.
