Investment objectives

The objective of this fund is to provide a high income and some growth. The fund will invest in bonds (a type of loan which pays interest). These bonds will have a pre-set rate of income (either set at a fixed level or varying in a pre-determined way). The bonds that the fund invests in will be almost entirely investment grade (rated as lower risk). Investment grade bonds are bonds that have achieved a minimum credit rating by a rating agency. Credit ratings give an indication of how likely it is that the issuer of a bond will be able to pay back interest and the loan on time. The bonds that the fund invests in will be issued by companies or governments anywhere in the world. The fund may use derivatives (contracts which have a value linked to the price of another asset) for the following purposes: To manage the effect of fluctuations in interest rates. To manage the effect of fluctuations in exchange rates with Sterling. To help with efficient day to day management. To reduce some of the risks of the market. The fund may also invest in cash or deposits. If you hold accumulation units, income from investments held by the fund (interest) will be reinvested into the value of your units. If you hold distribution units, income from investments held by the fund will be paid out to you (as interest). You can buy or sell units in this fund on any working day. You need to contact us with your instruction before 12 noon. This is the time we calculate unit prices for this fund. If you contact us after 12 noon, the units will be bought or sold at the next working day's price. This fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years.

The Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) shows the drag on performance caused by operational expenses associated with a fund.

Expenses which are represented by this figure include payments to the manager, the trustee the custodian and their representatives. The figure also includes registration, regulatory, audit and legal fees, and the costs of distribution.

Performance fees, transaction costs, interest on borrowing, costs associated with derivatives, entry and exit fees and soft commissions are not included in the OCF calculation, and should be factored in separately by the investor.

The OCF is calculated by taking the sum of these expenses incurred in the last 12 months and dividing this by the average net assets of that class for the last 12 months.

Total Expense Ratio (TER) is a formula designed to show the ongoing costs to the investor associated with a fund, including some charges which are not factored into the annual management fee. In addition the fund’s annual fee, charges such as trading fees, audit and legal fees, and operational expenses are included in the TER, which is worked out by dividing the total cost of the fund by its total assets to arrive at a percentage.

Unlike the Ongoing Charges Figure, the TER takes into account performance fees. It does not include transaction costs paid to the custodian.
