Our funds

Our funds are designed to suit a variety of investors' needs to enable you and your client to make the right decisions that best match their investment...

Equity Funds

Rathbone Global Opportunities Fund

We aim to deliver a greater total return than the Investment Association (IA) Global Sector, after fees, over any five-year period. Total return means the return we receive from the value of our investments increasing (capital growth) plus the income we receive from our investments (dividend payments). We use the IA Global sector as a target for our fund's return because we aim to achieve a better return than the average of funds that are similar to ours.

We compare our asset allocation to the FTSE World Index to give you an indication of how our fund is positioned against the global stock market.

Rathbone Income Fund

We aim to deliver an annual income that is in line with or better than that of the FTSE All-Share Index over any rolling three-year period. We also aim to increase the income we pay you in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) measure of inflation over any rolling five-year period.

We aim to generate a greater total return than the FTSE All-Share Index, after fees, over any five-year period. Total return means the return we receive from the value of our investments increasing (capital growth) plus the income we receive from our investments (dividend payments).

We use the FTSE All-Share Index as a target for our fund’s return and the income we pay because we want to offer you a better income and higher returns than the UK stock market. Increasing your income payments at least in line with the CPI measure of inflation protects your future spending power.

We also compare our fund against the Investment Association (IA) UK Equity Income sector because the funds in it are similar to ours.

Rathbone High Quality Bond Fund

We aim to preserve your capital and pay an income by delivering a greater total return than the Bank of England's Base Rate + 0.5%, after fees, over any rolling three-year period. Total return means the return we receive from the value of our investments increasing (capital growth) plus the income we receive from our investments (interest payments).

This is an investment product, not a cash savings account. Your capital is at risk.

Rathbone Strategic Bond Fund

We aim to deliver a greater total return than the Investment Association (IA) Sterling Strategic Bond sector, after fees, over any rolling five-year period. Total return means the return we receive from the value of our investments increasing (capital growth) plus the income we receive from our investments (interest payments). We use the IA Sterling Strategic Bond sector as a target for our fund’s return because we aim to achieve a better return than the average of funds that are similar to ours.

We aim to deliver this return with a lower volatility than the IA Sterling Strategic Bond sector. As an indication, the value of our fund should be expected to fluctuate less than the sector. Because we measure volatility over a five-year period, some falls may be larger or smaller over shorter periods of time. We aim to limit the amount of volatility risk our fund can take because we want our investors to understand the risk they are taking compared to funds similar to ours.
