Total net returns represent past performance only. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Total returns (net) have been calculated using exit prices and take into account the applicable buy/sell spread and are net of fees and costs and assume reinvestment of distributions. No allowance has been made for taxation or for any fees charged by operators of master trusts or wrap accounts through which the products are offered. Returns of more than one year are annualised. Returns of the Fund can be volatile and in some periods may be negative. The return of capital is not guaranteed. The Fund gains its exposure to global fixed income by investing in an offshore fund managed by one of our related entities (Underlying Fund). The holdings of the Underlying Fund are not selected, managed or measured with reference to any benchmark.
