This will be achieved through a flexible allocation to corporate and government debt securities (which may be unrated or sub-investment grade), transferable securities, collective investment schemes, financial derivative instruments and cash. Financial derivative instruments can be used for investment purposes and for efficient portfolio management. Derivatives may be used to achieve both long and short exposure to credit, interest rates and currencies globally.
