Fund invests, directly or indirectly, 100% of its assets in public and/or private fixed income (including deposits). The fund will invest between 80% and 100% of the total exposure in private fixed income assets, although because of market conditions this investment can be reduced, but not below 50% of total exposure. Minority investment in public issuers is not discarded. The average portfolio duration will range from 1 to 6 years. Both issuers of assets, as markets in which emissions are traded, are Eurozone countries and, minority, other OECD countries.
