The fund seeks to provide a regular and competitive level of income from an underlying portfolio of predominantly Sterling Corporate Bonds. The fund will invest predominantly in corporate bonds and other fixed interest securities. The ACD may also invest at its discretion in other transferable securities, money market instruments, deposits, cash and near cash and collective investment schemes. The Fund may, in addition to its other investment powers, use exchange traded and over the counter derivatives and forward currency contracts for investment purposes. Using these investment powers for investment purposes means, in particular, maintaining positions in these investments for the long term rather than just for tactical short-term purposes. However, where derivatives are used for the purposes of meeting the investment objective of the fund it is not intended that the use of derivatives would raise the overall risk profile of the fund.
