The Sub-fund will invest principally in equities of UK companies which are listed in the FTSE All Share Index, or any successor or substitute index. The Sub-fund may invest in UK companies of all sizes and will invest in a concentrated portfolio, typically comprised of between 30 and 40 holdings. The Sub-fund may also invest in equities of UK companies not listed in the FTSE All-Share Index, cash, and near cash.
