    Key risks

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

    This fund holds bonds that are traded through agents, brokers or investment banks matching buyers and sellers. This makes the bonds less easy to buy and sell than investments traded on an exchange. In exceptional circumstances the fund may not be able to sell bonds and may defer withdrawals, or suspend dealing. The Directors can only delay paying out if it is in the interests of all investors and with the permission of the fund depositary.

    The fund invests directly or indirectly in bonds which are issued by companies or governments. If these companies or governments experience financial difficulty, they may be unable to pay back some or all of the interest, original investment or other payments that they owe. If this happens, the value of the fund may fall.

    The fund could lose money if any institution providing services such as acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the fund.

    Derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset on which they are based and can increase the size of losses and gains.

    The fund may have underlying investments that are valued in currencies that are different from sterling (British pounds). Exchange rate fluctuations will impact the value of your investment. Currency hedging techniques may be applied to reduce this impact but may not entirely eliminate it.

    We may take some or all of the ongoing charges from the fund's capital rather than the fund's income. This increases the amount of income, but it reduces the growth potential and may lead to a fall in the value of the fund.

    Investment returns on bonds are sensitive to trends in interest rate movements. Such changes will affect the value of your investment.
