Objective

The Investment Objective of the Fund is to provide income with the prospect of capital growth. The funds' portfolio will consist primarily of a diversified range of open and closed ended funds, although significant exposure to other investments such as fixed interest securities are expected to be included in the portfolio from time to time. The portfolio will be actively managed, with the Investment Manager seeking to take advantage of inefficiencies in the pricing of closed ended funds and significant movements in financial markets.
