Fund Objective

Investment Proposition The Fund targets attractive long-term returns with lower volatility than equity markets by investing in a diversified portfolio of assets. The return target is at least 3.5% p.a. ahead of UK base rates (net of fees) over rolling five year periods. We aim to deliver this return whilst limiting volatility to less than 10% p.a. over rolling 5 year periods. Fund Aims To achieve long-term capital growth at a lower risk than equity markets by investing in a diversified portfolio. The Fund may gain exposure to a broad range of traditional and alternative asset classes which may include but is not limited to equities, investment grade and high yield bonds, property, private equity, infrastructure, commodities and currencies. In order to gain exposure to these asset classes the Fund may invest in transferable securities, money market instruments, collective investment schemes, derivatives and deposits. Up to 100% of the Fund may be invested in other collective investment vehicles and the Fund may use derivatives for both investment purposes and in the management of risk.
