The following data is updated on weekdays between 14:00 – 17:00. Sources for all data are Courtiers Asset Management Limited and Morningstar Direct. Charts show daily fund prices since launch (27/11/2015). Based on total return, income reinvested, returns are net of charges, single pricing basis in UK pound sterling. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns.
The Fund seeks to achieve income and capital growth, through investment in a portfolio of investment grade securities, over 5 years.
The Fund aims to achieve this by investing at least 90% of its assets in investment grade bonds worldwide. Investment grade is a rating which is BBB or higher from the rating agency Standard & Poor’s or the equivalent rating of another internationally recognised rating agency such as Fitch or Moody’s. The above time horizon is not a recommendation to sell the investment at the end of that minimum period.
The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities such as units/shares in investment funds, warrants, investments issued by banks or governments that are a short term loan to the issuer by the buyer, and near cash and deposits and other permitted securities.
The Fund is expected to have typically between 8 and 15 investment grade government and non-government fixed and variable interest rate securities globally.
No more than 10% of the Scheme Property of the Fund will be invested in other funds.
Derivatives (investments whose value is linked to another underlying investment such as shares or performance of a stock exchange) may be used to reduce risk or cost and/or to generate extra income and growth. The use of derivatives will generally not increase the risk profile of the Fund.
A retail or institutional investor, with an investment horizon of at least 5 to 10 years, who is prepared to accept some risk.
The Funds are designed to be used as part of an investor’s portfolio of funds; the percentage of an investor’s portfolio that is invested in each Fund will depend on the investor’s attitude to risk.
