The investment objective of the fund is to achieve real returns over a 3 year rolling period. The Fund has a real return (i.e. inflation-adjusted) mandate and, as such, it will tend to make greater use of strategies that themselves take a real return (rather than a market directional) approach as well as investing in Underlying Funds which are themselves invested in international equities and/or bonds. The investment policy is to invest predominantly in Underlying Funds, including exchange traded funds (ETFs) and closed ended funds qualifying as transferable securities within the meaning of article 41 of the Law across several management groups. The Underlying Funds invest predominantly in international equities and bonds.
