The Fund aims to achieve a positive capital return, regardless of market conditions, over rolling 3-year period, through investment and disinvestment (directly and indirectly) in a diversified portfolio of equities, fixed interest securities, cash, related derivative contracts and other instruments. There is no guarantee that a positive return will be achieved over any time period and capital may be at risk. Investors may not get back the full amount originally invested.
