The objective is to produce returns, after management fees, mainly through capital growth, in excess of the total return on the FTSE All-Share Index (or any successor or substitute index) over the long term. The Sub-fund will invest principally in equities of UK companies which are listed in the FTSE All Share Index, or any successor or substitute index. The Sub-fund may invest in UK companies of all sizes and will invest in a concentrated portfolio, typically comprised of between 30 and 40 holdings. The Sub-fund may also invest in equities of UK companies not listed in the FTSE All-Share Index, cash, and near cash.UK companies are companies of all sizes and in any economic sector that may be listed, quoted or traded in the UK or elsewhere but which are incorporated, domiciled or conduct a significant portion of their business in the UK. Up to 10% in value of the Sub-fund may be invested in collective investment schemes, including those managed or operated by the ACD, and/or deposits.
