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 e.g bonds, which could include government and corporate bonds in countries considered to be emerging markets as determined by the Investment Manager at its sole discretion. Hedging back to sterling aims to reduce the risk of exposure to other currencies. Emerging markets are countries progressing toward becoming advanced, usually shown by some development in financial markets, the existence of some form of stock exchange and a regulatory body. The remainder will be invested in other investment types such as cash and derivatives. Derivatives are investments whose value is linked to another investment, or to the performance of a stock exchange or to some other variable factor, such as interest rates and used to reduce risk or transaction costs and/or to generate extra income or further increase the value of your investment. The fund may also use derivatives with the aim of achieving the investment objective. The fund is actively managed without reference to a benchmark. The Investment Manager identifies suitable opportunities for the fund utilising in-house research and investment capabilities. The fund has full discretion in its choices of investments within its objectives and policies. Income from the fund is either paid out to you or it is used to buy you more shares in the fund. As the fund’s primary aim is to generate an income, some charges will be taken from the fund rather than the income generated by the fund. This means the amount payable as income may be increased and the potential to increase the value of your investment may be reduced. Shares can usually be bought and sold each business day of the fund. The return you will receive depends on the performance of the underlying assets.
