The Fund aims to generate positive returns over a rolling 3 year basis. However, there is no guarantee that this objective will be achieved over that specific, or any, time period and there is always a risk of loss to your original capital. The Fund will mainly invest in a broad range of investments that, when taken together, are expected to have a lower risk profile than investing in company shares directly.
