The fund aims to deliver income and capital growth by investing at least 70% of the fund in investment grade (high quality) fixed income securities issued by companies from anywhere in the world. Up to 20% of the fund may also be invested in other global fixed income investments. The fund holds these assets directly and through derivatives. The fund manager's overall 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.
