The fund aims to provide long term growth from capital gains and the reinvestment of income. It typically holds a portfolio of higher yielding debt securities, including government and corporate bonds, asset backed securities, sub investment grade bonds and inflation linked bonds, which are listed or trade in either developed or emerging markets. The fund may also invest assets in other bonds, floating rate notes (FRNs) and/or money market instruments issued anywhere in the world. The fund is actively managed by our investment team, who will select securities without reference to an index weight or size to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. The portfolio is complemented with an active allocation to a range of market positions, which utilise a combination of traditional assets and investment strategies based on advanced derivative techniques with the aim of reducing the fund's overall volatility and generating additional returns. Investors should note that this allocation is likely to result in the fund gaining exposure to non-bond market opportunities and risks. This means that performance may deviate from bonds over short and medium-term periods. The fund can take long and short positions in markets, securities and groups of securities through derivative contracts. Past performance is not a guide to future returns and future returns are not guaranteed. The price of assets and the income from them may go down as well as up and cannot be guaranteed; an investor may receive back less than their original investment. The fund will use derivatives extensively to reduce risk or cost, or to generate additional capital or income at low risk, or to meet its investment objective. Usage of derivatives is monitored to ensure that the fund is not exposed to excessive or unintended risks. The value of assets held within the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
