Fund Objective

The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income. The Fund invests principally in fixed income securities and money-market instruments which are issued by companies, governments, government agencies and supranationals. The Fund will invest in the full range of fixed income securities and moneymarket instruments which may include investments with a relatively low credit rating or which are unrated. The Fund can use derivatives as part of its investment strategy. This can increase the overall risk profile of the Fund.
