Fund Aims

Objective: The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the Baillie Gifford High Yield Bond Fund - the underlying fund.

Underlying Fund Objective: The fund aims to produce a combination of income and capital growth and will invest at least 80% in sub-investment grade bonds and will be actively managed. To the extent that the sub-fund is not fully invested in sub investment grade bonds, the sub-fund may also invest in other bonds, shares, other transferable securities, money market instruments, deposits and cash. The bonds in which the sub-fund invests will be denominated in sterling or denominated in other currencies and hedged back to sterling. The sub-fund may use derivatives and currency forwards for both investment purposes and in the management of risk.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

Source of portfolio data: Broadridge. Source of performance data: FE fundinfo. We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn’t a guide to future performance. The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of product charges, or any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with net income reinvested. The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
