Fund Objective: The Fund aims to deliver an income with the potential to increase the value of your investment. The Fund will be at least 70% exposed to sterling-denominated (or hedged back to sterling) global debt instruments, which may include (but are not limited to) government bonds, inflation-linked bonds, investment grade and high yield corporate bonds, which could include investment in countries considered as emerging markets as determined by the Investment Manager at its sole discretion. The Fund is actively managed without reference to a benchmark. The Fund may also obtain exposure to transferable securities, money market instruments, collective investment schemes, cash and near cash and deposits. Derivatives may be used for efficient portfolio management and investment purposes and may include (but are not limited to) derivatives on exchange rates, interest rates, inflation and credit. The Fund may also take positions which enable it to benefit from falling asset prices. The Funds performance can be compared to the ICE Bank of America Merrill Lynch Q880 Custom Index (GBP hedged), which is a custom blend of government, investment grade and high yield corporate indices, maintained by Bank of America Merrill Lynch as the index constituents best represent the characteristics the Fund is seeking to gain exposure to. Many funds sold in the UK are grouped into sectors by the Investment Association (the trade body that represents UK Investment Managers), to facilitate comparison between funds with broadly similar characteristics. This Fund is classified in the IA Sterling Strategic Bond sector. Performance data on funds within this sector may be prepared and published by data providers and will be used when evaluating the performance of this Fund. The IA sector most closely reflects the combination of assets in the Fund.
