Objective

The Fund aims to deliver a total return of at least 5% per annum above the 3-month GBP LIBOR rate, before any charges are taken, over any five-year period. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a positive return over five years, or any other period, and investors may not get back the original amount they invested. The Fund is a multi-asset fund that invests across a range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income securities, convertibles, cash and near cash. Exposure to these assets may be gained either directly or indirectly via collective investment schemes or derivatives. The Fund may also invest indirectly via collective investment schemes or derivatives in other asset classes such as property and gold. The Fund seeks to manage risk by investing globally across multiple asset classes, sectors, currencies and countries. The Fund will typically invest 20- 60% of its assets in equities and convertibles, 30- 75% in fixed income securities or cash, and up to 20% in other assets. These allocations reflect the net exposure of the portfolio.
