Fund Objective The Fund aims to generate a growing level of income over any three-year period. The Fund also aims to provide capital growth of 2-4% over any three-year period. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective over this, or any other, period. The income distributions and the value of your investment may rise and fall and investors may not recoup the original amount they invested. The fund manager adopts a flexible approach to the allocation of capital between asset classes in response to changes in economic conditions and the valuation of assets. Central to this approach is the identification of episodes, which are periods of time during which, in the fund managers view, asset prices become over- or under-stated, relative to objective valuation measures, due to the emotional reaction of investors to events. These episodes can exist over both the short and medium term. The Fund invests in transferable securities, fixed income assets (including, but not limited to, corporate bonds and government and public securities), warrants, cash, and near cash. Exposure to these assets, and to property, may be gained via collective investment schemes and derivatives (including equity index futures, currency forwards, interest rate swaps, and other liquid derivatives). The manager may seek to minimise currency risk through the combination of diversification and hedging. Derivatives may also be used for efficient portfolio management purposes. More than 70% of the Fund will be in sterling or hedged back to sterling.

Fund versus Morningstar Category
The value of the fund and the income from it can go down as well as up so you may get back less than you invested. If your fund invests in overseas markets, changes in currency exchange rates may affect the value of your investment. If your fund invests in small and emerging markets, these can be more volatile than other more developed markets. Past performance is not a guide to future returns.
For funds that invest in bonds, please be aware that the price of bonds is influenced by movements in interest rates, changes in the credit rating of bond issuers, and other factors such as inflation and market dynamics. In general, as interest rates rise the price of a bond will fall. The risk of default is based on the issuer's ability to make interest payments and to repay the loan at maturity. Default risk may therefore vary between different government issuers as well as between different corporate issuers.
Some of the performance and risk data presented may start before the share class was launched. If so, the data prior to the launch date of the share class is based on the fund or share class that has similar or higher charges, in order to provide an indication of longer term performance and risk. Please refer to the launch date and performance start date in the fund factsheet to determine whether the data has been extended.Past Performance and Risk & Volatility figures are presented in British Pounds Sterling (GBP). Fund returns are calculated on a Nav to Nav or Bid to Bid basis with income reinvested either after tax (for UK-domiciled funds) or gross of tax (for offshore funds). Performance figures include the effect of the OCF/TER. To cover distribution costs a separate service fee is now also charged on most funds, which is not included in the past performance figures. Consequently the past performance of the fund may be less than that shown on the chart due to the effect of the service fee.
