Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide long term growth from a combination of income and capital growth by investing predominantly in government and corporate inflation-linked bonds with a maturity of up to 10 years. The fund is actively managed by our investment team who may also invest a proportion of assets in other bonds (e.g. conventional government bonds, corporate bonds and floating rate notes (FRNs) and/ or money market instruments) in order to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Non-sterling denominated assets will typically be hedged back to sterling.
