  • What is the Fund’s objective?

    The fund seeks to provide a high and rising level of income through investment in a diversified range of assets. Subject to this, the fund aims to grow capital over the long term (that is, time periods of five years or more). The fund invests in a range of income-generating assets from around the world, including company shares and fixed income investments. Exposure to these assets is gained through physical holdings and the use of derivatives. The holdings in different asset classes will be adjusted regularly according to where the fund manager sees the most value and to manage risks.
