Fund Provider M&G Limited
Fund Summary The Fund targets a combined income and capital growth of at least three-month GBP LIBOR plus 2.5% a year over any three year period, before any charges and in any market conditions. Three-month GBP LIBOR is the rate at which banks borrow money from each other.The Fund aims to achieve this while seeking to minimise the degree to which the value of the Fund fluctuates over time, and also seeking to limit monthly losses. Managing the Fund in this way reduces its ability to achieve returns significantly above threemonth GBP LIBOR plus 2.5%.There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a positive return over any period, and investors may not get back the original amount they invested.
