Amity Sterling Bond Fund

Operating in the Sterling Strategic Bond sector, this fund aims for attractive income from high-quality sterling fixed interest securities. Due to changes in UK tax legislation which came into force on 6 April 2017 all future interest distributions for the Amity Sterling bond Fund will be paid gross without deduction of income tax. Investors should note that with effect from 1 January 2017 both Class A and Class B shares became gross distributing shares and the net asset values have been adjusted accordingly to reflect this change. The first distribution effected was the distribution payment of 31 May 2017 payable to all registered holders as at 31 March 2017.
