The Fund aims to provide a high return which is likely to be a combination of capital growth and income. The Fund invests in a broad range of bonds. It may invest in global bonds issued by companies, governments and large international organisations in a variety of currencies. Typically at least 80% of the bonds in the Fund will be priced in Sterling, or hedged to Sterling. Hedging is a technique to reduce the impact of any adverse exchange rate movements. Bonds are broadly split into two types, higher quality, which are known as investment grade, and lower quality which are known as non investment grade.

Headline performance can mask the true characteristics of a fund. Without fully understanding how a fund is managed, you may inadvertanly become exposed to an undesirable level of risk to your capital. Some funds carry a dilution levy which reduces the number of units realised on any initial investment as an initial charge. If this fund carries such a levy it should be detailed in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID), which we must provide and you should read before investing.

In such cases, historial data has been synthesised at the entire discretion of that external provider as realistically as possible using historical data recorded against the previously available commission-paying version of the fund, adjusting for fees in the process.
The documents listed below are the latest versions made available to our data provider by the fund management group, but may not necessarily reflect the applicable charges that would be levied should you purchase this fund via Charles Stanley Direct. You should treat the charges and other figures shown in the 'Overview' tab as accurate.
