1. Objective

    The Multi Asset Income Fund aims to produce monthly income, whilst seeking to maintain the value of that income and of capital in line with inflation (UK CPI) over five-year periods. The Fund has no benchmark. However, you may wish to assess performance of both income and capital against inflation (UK CPI) over five-year periods.

    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.
