The Sub-Fund is suitable for retail and institutional investors who consider an investment fund as a convenient way of participating in capital market developments. It is also suitable for more experienced investors wishing to attain defined investment objectives with an investment horizon of 3 years.
The sub-fund’s objective is to offer its shareholders superior long-term capital gains. This objective will be achieved by investing the sub-fund’s assets primarily in fixed income instruments, as well as cash or other monetary instruments and derivatives, without geographical limitation and without sectorial restrictions.

Fixed income instruments will have a weight of at least 80% of the net assets of the sub-fund. The sub-fund may allocate up to 20% of its net assets in cash or cash equivalent instruments. There are no limits or restrictions regarding geographical regions or other specific economic or industrial sectors or niches. The choices made by the Investment Manager are discretionary and reflect its expectations and strategic views. As a consequence, the allocation may vary from time to time.
