The objective of this fund is to provide a mixture of income and growth (if the income is reinvested) by tracking the performance of the Barclays World Government Ex UK Inflation Linked Bonds TR Hedged GBP Index. The fund will invest between 80% and 100% in bonds (a type of loan which pays interest) included in the Index. These bonds will have a pre-set rate of income (either set at a fixed level or varying in a predetermined way). The fund’s investments will closely match those that make up the Index and this will be achieved through investing in a sample selection of the bonds in the Index. The bonds are issued in the relevant national currency by governments around the world (excluding the UK). The interest and capital returns on these bonds will be linked to local inflation rates. The bonds that the fund invests in will be a mixture of investment grade bonds (rated as lower risk) and sub-investment grade bonds (rated as higher risk). The mix will closely match that of the Index. Investment and sub-investment grade bonds are bonds that have been given a credit rating by 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 United States government or public bonds. 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. It will also use currency derivatives for investment purposes to manage the effect of fluctuations in exchange rates with Sterling, in order to maintain accurate tracking. The fund may also invest in other bonds, deposits, money market instruments and cash. Money market instruments are a type of security where cash can be deposited for short periods of time.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 fundwill be paid out to you every six months (as interest). This fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw theirmoney within five years. The fund may be appropriate if you would like toadd a more specialist investment to an existing portfolio.
