The fund aims provide an income that is at least 10% higher than that produced by the FTSE All-Share Index. The Fund will invest in shares of UK companies that are selected for their income rather than their ability to provide capital growth. The Fund may also invest in smaller companies including companies listed on the AIM stock exchange. AIM is the London Stock Exchanges International Market for smaller growing companies.
