Objective

The Fund's objective is to maximise long term total return. The Fund invests mainly in debt instruments on a global basis which include, but are not limited to, variable rate securities, fixed interest securities, sovereign debt and corporate debt. The Fund's exposure to debt instruments may be gained through the use of derivatives. The Fund may also invest in other assets including collective investment schemes, money market instruments, cash and near cash, deposits, other transferable securities and derivatives. The fund manager selects investments based on an assessment of macroeconomic factors such as economic growth, interest rates and inflation. This analysis determines which areas of the global bond markets the manager believes the fund should invest in to achieve its objective
