The fund aims to maximise total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) through investing mainly in investment grade government bonds on a global basis. Exposure to these assets is gained through physical holdings and the use of derivatives. The portfolio’s positioning is influenced by global and country-specific macroeconomic factors, such as the rate of economic growth as well as currency and interest rate movements.
