The Fund will seek to outperform the iBoxx Sterling Non-Gilts Over 10 Year Bond Index. This objective is to be treated as a target only and not as an assurance or guarantee of performance of the Fund. In order to achieve its investment objective, the Fund will invest mainly in sterling denominated investment grade non-government bonds, but other sterling denominated fixed income securities, gilts, money market instruments and cash may be acquired.
