How it works

For debt, the fund invests to gain exposure to high quality debt, such as bonds, money market instruments and commercial paper and certificates of deposits issued by governments, other public bodies and companies in developed countries.

For shares, the fund invests to gain exposure to developed and emerging markets using a core strategy meaning that the fund has a general exposure to the stock-market with a greater allocation towards shares of small sized companies and value companies. Value companies are those where, at the time of purchase, the fund manager thinks the price is low compared to the accounting value of the company. The fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in emerging markets countries. As this fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone, a currency risk arises for a euro investor.

This fund is managed by Dimensional.
