The objective of the Fund is to seek to achieve a return for investors over the medium to long term based on a combination of capital growth and income and with an above median volatility level through exposure to a diversified range of asset classes. The Fund seeks to meet its objective by gaining exposure to a global portfolio of property, cash and various classes of equities and bonds, the relative allocation to each of which (asset allocation) is determined by a model provided by eValue Investment Solutions (eValue). The actual financial instruments held by the Fund will, wherever practicably possible, be of a passive nature: that is to say, collective investment schemes or other financial instruments that seek to track the performance of investment indices.
