The Fund’s objective is to maximise income and generate superior risk-adjusted returns over an investment cycle by investing in high dividend-yielding equity stocks and bonds.
To achieve the investment objective, the Fund’s assets will be invested in the financial sector globally, in equity securities (e.g. ordinary shares or common stock American Depository Receipts (“ADRs”), Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”) and preference shares), fixed and variable rate debt securities (e.g. corporate bonds, which may be investment grade or below investment grade as rated by Moody’s, Standard & Poors, Fitch or other rating agencies, or unrated), contingent convertible instruments (“CoCo-Bonds”), hybrid securities, and other subordinated debt, as further described below, as well as deposits. The Fund may invest substantially in deposits with credit institutions during periods of high market volatility.
