Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide a combination of capital growth and income by predominantly investing in a portfolio of bonds issued by the UK government with returns linked to inflation, which are commonly referred to as index linked gilts. The fund may also hold bonds issued by other highly rated governments, and other assets such as cash and shares. The fund is managed on behalf of St. James's Place by BlackRock. Their investment approach aims to replicate a blend of two FTSE index linked gilt indices.
