The Fund objective is to grow the money invested in the Fund over the long-term and provide investors with an income. The Fund will predominantly invest in a variety of other funds. These underlying funds invest mainly in shares of companies, corporate and government bonds, commodities (such as gold), and property on a global basis; and a variety of bonds, on a global basis, including government bonds and corporate bonds. The Fund can invest in bonds that offer a high yield. These bonds tend to pay more income than other bonds but do pose a greater risk to the money invested. It is intended that the Fund will have a minimum exposure of 60% in bonds and cash deposits from assets held directly by the Fund and those held by the underlying funds.
