The objective of this fund is to provide income by tracking the performance of the Markit iBoxx Sterling Non-Gilts ex BBB Index. The fund will invest between 70% and 100% in bonds (a type of loan which pays interest) included in the Index. The fund’s investments will closely match those that make up the Index. The Index consists of bonds which are issued in Sterling by UK or overseas companies. The bonds that the fund invests in will be almost entirely investment grade (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. 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 deposits, money market instruments and cash. Money market instruments are a type of security where cash can be deposited for short periods of time. This fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years.
