Investment objective and policy

The fund aims to beat returns offered by money-market products and bonds while avoiding volatility usually associated with the stock markets. This means that the fund offers greater capital protection during bear markets. The weighting of the various asset classes may change significantly depending on how attractive they are in relation to each other (from 0 to 100%).
