Objective

The Fund aims to provide a total return* of capital and income in excess of that achieved by the FTSE Small Cap Index (excluding investment companies) over the medium to long term. The Scheme will be actively managed on a total return basis investing primarily in UK companies having a market capitalisation of 250m or less at the time of purchase. A considerable proportion of the portfolio will be invested in smaller companies with a market capitalisation of less than 150m at the time of purchase. At times it may be appropriate for the Scheme not to be fully invested but to hold cash and near cash.
