Our ILF GBP Liquidity Plus Fund is a short-term bond fund which seeks to generate returns above money market rates from a wide spectrum of short-term fixed income instruments and floating rate note securities. Our liquidity-plus capabilities have the potential to deliver enhanced money market returns by investing across a broader spectrum of securities and through active duration and yield curve management.


Security: we aim to preserve capital by investing only in high quality holdings that carry a minimum credit rating of A1 for short-term investments and A for long-term investments. The securities we invest in and the counterparties we deal with are rigorously analysed and screened on a regular basis. Credit risk is further mitigated by placing an emphasis on diversification across a range of eligible securities and issuers that have been filtered out by our robust screening processes. Our ILF GBP Liquidity Plus Fund is rated AAAf/S1 by Fitch ratings

Liquidity: daily, dealing deadline two business days prior to dealing day

Yield: we aim to generate income above sterling-denominated short-dated money market interest rates

The value of investments and any income from them will fluctuate and is not guaranteed (this may be partly due to exchange rate fluctuations). Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

This is not a banking product and whilst preservation of capital is a major component of the objective it is not guaranteed. The value of capital invested in a money market fund may fluctuate. Neither Insight nor any other BNYM group company will provide capital support in the event of any capital loss, which will be borne by the investor.

Where the portfolio holds over 35% of its net asset value in securities of one governmental issuer, the value of the portfolio may be profoundly affected if one or more of these issuers fails to meet its obligations or suffers a ratings downgrade.

The issuer of a debt security may not pay income or repay capital to the bondholder when due.
