The Fund aims to provide income and preserve the value of your investment, however, this is not guaranteed. The Fund is actively managed, and looks to provide income returns broadly in line with the 1 Month GBP London Interbank Bid Rate (LIBID), before charges are deducted. LIBID is the indicative interest rate that banks expect to pay when borrowing from each other in the London Interbank Market. It is widely used by shortterm money market funds to provide a benchmark against which performance can be compared over time. The Fund invests in short-term assets of high credit quality from issuers that have received a favourable assessment in accordance with credit quality assessment procedures adopted by the Fund. These investments may include UK Government securities (including Treasury bills) with a maturity of 184 days or less, sterling denominated cash deposits and certificates of deposit. In addition, up to 50% of the Fund may be invested in sterling denominated commercial paper, also with a maturity of 184 days, or less. Investment in other short-term money market funds is permitted, but limited in total to 10% of the Fund’s value.Investor Profile. The Fund may be suitable for investors with a short term investment horizon seeking income and a high level of capital security. Please note that the Fund may not be suitable if interest rates are very low given that investment returns may not exceed the liabilities/payments of the Fund which could result in negative returns. If investors are uncertain if the Fund is suitable for them, they are advised to contact a financial adviser.
