Objective

The Fund aims to provide investors with a level of income that can be sustained over a period of time, as well as providing the possibility that the amount they invest in the Fund will increase. The Fund will invest in a mixture of fixed interest securities and ordinary shares that pay higher than average dividends, principally issued by UK companies. The balance between ordinary shares and fixed interest securities will change over time to reflect opportunities presented by changing market circumstances, but will always be subject to a minimum level of 60% in fixed interest securities.
