Objective

The Fund aims to maximise total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) while generating a higher level of income than that from European government bonds of similar maturities. The Fund invests mainly in investment grade corporate bonds denominated in any European currency. The Fund may also invest in high yield corporate bonds, government and public securities denominated in any European currency. The Funds exposure to bonds, government and other public securities may be gained through the use of derivatives.
