Fund Objective

The aim of the Fund is to provide income. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in high income paying bonds (which are similar to a loan and pay a fixed or variable interest rate) issued by companies worldwide. High income paying bonds are bonds that have received lower ratings from international agencies that provide such ratings. These bonds are considered riskier than higher rated bonds but typically pay a higher income. The Fund may also invest in asset classes and instruments different from those stated above.
