The fund has three aims: to increase the income stream every year; to provide a dividend yield above that available from the MSCI All Countries World Index over any five-year period; and to provide combined income and capital growth that is higher than that of the index over any five-year period. At least 70% of the fund is invested in the shares of companies from anywhere in the world. The fund manager focuses on companies with the potential to grow their dividends over the long term and invests across a wide range of countries, sectors and company sizes. The fund manager selects stocks with different sources of dividend growth to build a fund that has the potential to cope in a variety of market conditions.
