To provide you with income and some capital growth by investing mostly in bonds (which are like loans that can pay a fixed or variable interest rate). The bonds will be issued by companies, governments and other organizations based in the UK or other European countries. Although they can be of any quality, the bonds will typically have lower ratings, as defined by international agencies that provide such ratings; these may pay higher rates of interest than bonds with higher ratings.
