Fund Objective The investment objective of the Fund is to provide investors with a total return, taking into account both capital and income returns, which reflects the return of the FTSE UK Conventional Gilts - Up To 5 Years Index. The objectives of the Fixed Income Funds are achieved by investing in a portfolio of government bond issues that so far as practicable and possible consist of the component securities of each Fund?s Benchmark Index. The Fixed Income Funds may utilise optimisation techniques extensively and may be able to provide a return similar to that of their Benchmark Indices by investing only in a relatively small number of the constituents of their Benchmark Indices. Derivatives can be used for efficient portfolio management and direct investment purposes. The portfolios are passively managed and cannot exceed the exposure limits set out in the Regulations and outlined in Schedule III of the Full Prospectus.

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.
The investment policy of this fund means it can be more than 35% invested in Government and public securities. These can be issued or guaranteed by other countries and Governments. For a full list please refer to the fund's prospectus.
