Underlying Fund

FE Crown Rating ( Underlying )

Fund Objective ( Underlying )

The fund aims to provide relatively high income with the possibility of capital growth. It invests primarily in sterling denominated (or hedged back to sterling) bonds and has the freedom to invest outside the fund’s principal geographies, market sectors, industries or asset classes. The fund can invest in bonds issued by governments, companies and other bodies and can use derivatives with the aim of risk or cost reduction or to generate additional capital or income in line with the fund’s risk profile. May also make extensive use of derivatives including more complex instruments or strategies to achieve the investment objective and these may result in leverage. In such situations performance may rise or fall more than it would have done otherwise, reflecting such additional exposure.
