The Sub-Fund has, as its primary objective, the generation of a high level of current income by means of investment in high yielding fixed and floating rate securities of varying maturities denominated in a spread of the world’s major and minor traded currencies. Capital appreciation is sought only when the Investment Manager feels it is consistent with the primary income objective of the Sub-Fund. This could arise as the result of a specific or general fall in interest rates, through the improvement in the credit ratings of individual or groups of fixed interest bearing securities or by means of positive relative currency movements.
