Underlying Yield

23 April 2018 by

The Underlying Yield reflects the annualised income net of expenses of the Fund as a percentage of the mid-market share price of the Fund as at the date shown. In addition to expected cash income, it includes the amortised annual value of unrealised capital gains/losses of current bond holdings, calculated with reference to their historic purchase price and expected redemption value (known as ‘effective yield from purchase price’ method).

It is based on a snapshot of the portfolio on the date shown. It does not include any preliminary charge and investors may be subject to tax on distributions. The Underlying Yield is calculated net of all expenses, not including the portion charged to capital. This has the effect of increasing distributions and constraining the Fund’s capital performance.
