About the Fund
The abrdn Absolute Return Global Bond Strategies Fund is invested primarily in the Aberdeen Standard Global SICAV Absolute Return Global Bond Strategies Fund (the "fund) which aims to provide positive investment returns in the form of income and capital growth in all market conditions over the medium to long term. The fund is actively managed, with a wide investment remit to target a level of return over rolling three-year periods equivalent to cash plus three per-cent a year, gross of fees. It exploits market inefficiencies through active allocation to a diverse range of market positions. The fund uses a combination of traditional assets (such as bonds, cash and money market instruments) and investment strategies based on advanced derivative techniques, resulting in a highly diversified portfolio. The fund can take long and short positions in markets, securities and groups of securities through derivative contracts.
The primary investment objective of the Fund is to deliver a positive absolute return over the medium to long term in all market conditions. The fund is actively managed, with a wide investment remit to target a level of return over rolling 3 year periods equivalent to cash plus 3% per year, gross of fees. We would expect annualised volatility to be between 2% and 4% in ordinary market conditions.
