Fund Provider Schroders
Fund Summary The Fund aims to provide an absolute return of 3 month LIBOR plus 2% (gross of fees) over rolling 12-month periods by gaining exposure to fixed and floating rate securities issued by governments, government agencies and companies worldwide. Absolute return means the Fund seeks to provide a positive return over rolling 12-month periods, in all market conditions but this cannot be guaranteed and your capital is at risk. The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets directly, or indirectly through derivatives, in fixed and floating rate securities denominated in sterling (or in other currencies and hedged back into sterling) issued by governments, government agencies, supra-national and corporate issuers worldwide. As the Fund is index-unconstrained it is managed without reference to an index. The Fund may invest up to 50% of its assets in below investment grade securities as measured by Standard & Poors or an equivalent credit rating agency, or in unrated securities. The Fund may invest up to 100% of its assets in asset-backed securities and mortgage-backed securities. The Fund may also invest in collective investment schemes, warrants and money market instruments, and hold cash. The Fund may use derivatives with the aim of achieving investment gains, reducing risk or managing the Fund more efficiently. The Fund may use leverage and take short positions.
