Important information

All information is as at 30.09.18 unless otherwise stated. The distribution yield reflects the amount that may be expected to be distributed over the 12 months, as a percentage of the mid-market unit price of the Fund. Based on a snapshot of the portfolio as at 30.09.16. The yield is not guaranteed, will vary over time and take no account of any preliminary charge. ‡High Yield Debt - Global: BofAML Global High Yield TR USD, Investment Grade Debt: BofAML Global Brd Mkt Corp TR USD, Global Equities: MSCI ACWI TR; Global Property: S&P Global REIT TR; Global Infrastructure: S&P Global Infrastructure TR, EM Debt: 50% JPM GBI-EM Glbl Div/50% EMBI Glbl Div, DM Debt: BofAML Global Governments Bond II TR.
* The yield reflects the amount that may be distributed over the next 12 months as a percentage of the Fund’s net asset value per share, as at the date shown, based on a snapshot of the portfolio on that day. Where there is a yield number in brackets, it is calculated in the same way, however, as the charges of the share class are deducted from capital rather than income, it shows the level of yield had these charges been deducted from income. Yields do not include any preliminary charge and investors may be subject to tax on their distributions. The effect of taking expenses from capital is to increase income whilst reducing capital to an equivalent extent and may constrain future capital and income growth.
