About this fund

Fund objectives

  • The Fund seeks to provide a combination of income and moderate longterm capital appreciation by investing in fixed income and equity securities, primarily through investment in other collective investment schemes.
  • The Fund pursues an actively-managed investment strategy whereby the investment manager has discretion over the composition of the Fund’s portfolio holdings and is not managed with reference to a benchmark index. However, as more particularly described below, the investment manager manages the Fund through pre-determined asset allocations to equity and fixed income securities using a combination of underlying collective investment schemes.
  • The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by gaining exposure to a diversified portfolio composed approximately of 40% by value of equity securities and 60% by value of fixed income securities, which will, subject to the requirements of the Central Bank, be obtained predominantly via direct investment in passively managed exchange traded funds (“ETFs”) or other collective investment schemes which track an index (together the “Target Funds”). The portfolio asset allocation may be reconstituted and rebalanced from time to time at the discretion of the investment manager. The Target Funds in which the Fund invests will be UCITS and may include other sub-funds of Vanguard Funds plc.
  • It is intended that the Fund’s indirect exposures, through its investment in the Target Funds, will be to: (1) shares of companies from developed and emerging markets; and (2) to fixed income securities, such as bonds, denominated in multiple currencies, from both developed and emerging markets issuers (for example, global investment grade debt, including treasury, governmentrelated, corporate and securitised fixed-rate bonds). The Fund’s exposure to the Target Funds is not intended to reflect any geographic or sectoral bias. The Fund will seek to indirectly hedge the non-EUR currency exposure within the fixed income allocation of the Fund’s portfolio to EUR, by investing in EUR hedged share classes of the Target Funds.
  • The Fund may use derivatives in order to reduce risk or cost and/or generate extra income or growth. The use of derivatives could increase or reduce exposure to underlying assets and result in greater fluctuations of the Fund’s net asset value. A derivative is a financial contract whose value is based on the value of a financial asset (such as a share, bond, or currency) or a market index.
