本基金的投資目標是透過盡量提高當前收入以達致高的總回報，並實現與該目標一致的資本增值。投資管理人有意利用市場發展、孳息差距及發行人的信用變動管理本基金，從而盡量提高當前收入。 本基金透過主要投資於歐洲公司及政府的固定收益證券以達致此目標。無論何時，投資管理人均會將基金總資產的三分之二（2/3）投資於該等證券，而最多會將基金總資產的三分之一（1/3）投資於非歐洲發行人以歐元或歐洲貨幣計價的固定收益證券。 投資管理人亦預期，本基金約65%的總資產將投資於投資級別固定收益證券，本基金約35%的總資產投資於評級低於投資級別的證券。然而，倘投資管理人認為該等投資就當前市況而言乃屬適當，則本基金最多可投資總資產的50%於投資級別以下的固定收益證券。
