Fund Outline

Investment Objective - The Fund aims to provide investors with a high level of income relative to short term bank interest rates. The Fund also invests in a limited pool of growth assets with the aim of maintaining the value of capital after inflation.
  Strategy - The Fund invests in a carefully selected portfolio of government and corporate bonds, cash, listed property, infrastructure and utility companies, high yielding equities, credit securities and other yielding financial assets.

We employ the specialist services of the JBWere Fixed Interest team to advise on fixed interest security selection and aid in portfolio construction. Devon has control over this investment process.
