What do you see as the main reason for holding a global equity income fund?

The sector has an abundance of good managers
They diversify my income stream away from the UK
They diversify my total return potential away from the UK
They are cost effective

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. It has the freedom to invest outside the fund's principal geographies, market sectors, industries or asset classes. Can invest in bonds issued by governments, companies and other bodies. The fund may make extensive use of derivatives including complex instruments and strategies which are consistent with achieving the fund’s objective. This may result in “leverage” by which we mean a level of exposure which could expose the fund to the potential of greater gains or losses than would otherwise be the case. The fund has discretion in its choices of investments within its objectives and policies.
