All calculations are in GBP

Objective

The Fund seeks to maximise absolute return, consisting of capital appreciation and income, by investing at least 70% of its Net Asset Value in a combination of Investment Grade and high yield bonds that are listed or traded anywhere in the world. The manager expects the weighted average duration of the Fund's investment to range between -10 and +10 years, depending on the managers' forecast for interest rates and yields. The market risk of the Fund will be measured using the value-at-risk (“VaR”) methodology, which will not exceed 20 per cent of the Fund's Net Asset Value.
