How it works

The fund invests in high quality debt such as bonds, commercial paper and bank debt. This debt is issued by governments, other public bodies and companies from developed countries and, at the time of purchase, this debt is generally rated at least P1, A-1 or F1 short term or AA- or Aa3 long term by the major rating agencies. Generally, the fund will maintain an average duration of its investments with a range between five and ten years. To seek protection from inflation in the Eurozone, the fund purchases debt which has its principal and interest payments adjusted for inflation. The fund may also purchase debt without this inflation protection and then enter into financial contracts or instruments (derivatives) which, when held in combination with this debt, is intended to approximate the performance of inflation linked assets. The fund may purchase debt in currencies other than the Euro and, where it does so, will use derivatives to manage the fund’s exposure to these currencies.
