Investment Objectives

The Fund seeks to generate a high level of income over a full market cycle, regardless of market conditions, with a secondary objective of capital preservation by investing mainly in fixed income securities of issuers anywhere in the world. Any proposed change to the fundamental investment objectives of the Fund must be approved by a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of the Fund’s investors called for that purpose.

Investment Strategy

The Fund uses a dual approach to research, combining both macro and fundamental research into a holistic process to deploy capital more efficiently. The Fund also adopts a flexible approach allowing it to dynamically rotate exposures to align with the market environment. This involves investing across various fixed income credit ratings, duration, structures, sectors, currencies and countries, and may, at any time, invest a significant portion of its net assets in any one area noted below.
