Defined Returns Fund
The Fund aims to generate a medium to long-term return of 7-8% a year through exposure to a diversified portfolio of defined return investments linked to global equity indices. It will invest primarily in a mixture of transferable securities, financial derivative instruments and government bonds (currently UK gilts) to gain this exposure. At outset, a defined return investment will only be eligible for inclusion if it provides for a long-term positive return in anything but the bleakest of market conditions.
