Fund Objective

The fund is designed to provide investors with an opportunity to attain the stability of bonds while maintaining exposure to potential equity upsides. The fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth that is independent of equity market performance and positive absolute returns over rolling three year periods. The fund accomplishes this by investing in a range of defensive assets – investments that are generally lower risk and less volatile than equities, and don’t rely on market growth to achieve returns – such as preference shares, convertibles and structured notes.
