1. Objective

    The Investment Grade Bond Fund aims to outperform (after deduction of costs) the ICE Bank of America Merrill Lynch Sterling Non-Gilt Index by 0.5% per annum over rolling three-year periods. There is no guarantee that this objective will be achieved over any time period and actual investment returns may differ from this objective, particularly over shorter time periods.

    The manager believes this is an appropriate benchmark given the investment policy of the Fund and the approach taken by the manager when investing. In addition, the manager believes an appropriate performance comparison for this Fund is the Investment Association Sterling Corporate Bonds Sector.

    The value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up and you or your client may not get back the amount originally invested.

    Dealing in the Fund In light of current market conditions, we have introduced a threshold for daily net inflows or outflows of money into or out of the Fund. If this threshold is exceeded, we will increase the dilution adjustment to reflect the increased dealing costs incurred by the Fund as a result of these larger inflows and outflows

    Please bear in mind that past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of your investment may go down as well as up, and you may not get back the amount invested.

    As we prospect for ideas we value robust debate. This is why the investment teams are kept small, why we rotate sector coverage, and why our ideas are shared with the wider firm.
