The objective of the fund is to achieve annual positive returns, whatever prevailing market and economic conditions are. A positive return may not be achieved at all times. The fund seeks to achieve this objective by investing mainly in convertible bonds (loans that can be converted into shares of the issuer) issued by companies worldwide that are usually not dealt on a stock exchange. A portion of the Fund may be invested in standard bonds or shares which may also not be dealt in on a stock exchange. The value of investments is generally protected against the risk of adverse movements in interest rates and in currency rates versus the Euro.
