The fund aims to provide income and grow capital while providing more income than that from European government bonds with similar final repayment dates. At least 70% of the fund is invested in high-quality bonds issued in any European currency. The fund manager can also invest part of the portfolio in other fixed income securities, such as government bonds. Exposure to these assets is gained through direct holdings and the use of derivatives. An in-house team of independent credit analysts assists the fund manager in the selection of individual bond issues and with the monitoring of names held by the fund.
