Investment policy

The objective of the Fund is to provide long-term capital growth.

The Fund will seek to achieve its objective from an actively managed and diversified portfolio of collective investment schemes (including investment trusts) with exposure to cash, fixed interest securities, equity and equity-linked investments selected from various markets worldwide encompassing a variety of economic sectors. The Fund will typically invest between 20% and 60% of its portfolio in schemes which invest in equity securities.

The use of derivatives is not permitted but borrowing of up to 10% of the Fund’s net asset value will be permitted on a temporary basis. The Fund may invest in hedged share classes of underlying funds.

Although the Fund will normally remain fully invested, the property of the Fund may consist of up to 10% cash or near cash where this may be reasonably regarded as necessary in order to enable the pursuit of the Fund’s objective, the settlement of redemptions of units and the efficient management of the Fund in accordance with its objectives or other purposes which may be reasonably regarded as ancillary to the objectives of the Fund.

The Fund’s benchmark is IA Mixed Investment 20-60% Shares. This represents a comparator benchmark because the Fund’s performance can be compared to funds which also sit within this industry sector.
