FUND OBJECTIVES AND FOCUS
The portfolio seeks to optimise returns from investments in gilts, semi-gilts and liquid assets.
To provide a combination of income and capital appreciation, the portfolio invests in longer term interest-bearing securities (maturity of five years or longer).
The portfolio is actively managed to take advantage of changes in market conditions without taking too high a risk.
This portfolio is ideal for an investor seeking a regular income from a medium risk unit trust that invests in bonds and delivers both income and capital growth.
