The Fund seeks to maximise total return through capital appreciation and income by investing at least two-thirds of its Net Asset Value in investment grade debt securities denominated in the currencies of, or issuers located primarily in, developed countries around the world. The Sub Investment Manager will concentrate investments in undervalued markets that provide the best opportunity for declining interest rates and a return to lower real rates over time.
