The Fund aims to achieve long term capital appreciation. The Fund will seek to achieve its objective by investing predominantly in: collective investment schemes and other investments (for example transferable securities) that provide exposure to alternative asset classes such as global property, infrastructure, commodities (indirectly, for example through exchange traded commodity index futures) and inflation linked securities, global fixed income securities; and/or global equity securities. The Fund may use currency hedging techniques to reduce exposure to currencies other than Sterling.
