Fund Objective

The Fund aims to provide a return on your investment (generated through an increase in the value of the assets held by the Fund and/or income received from those assets) over the medium term (3 consecutive years), which exceeds the Bank of England’s Base Interest Rate by 3.5% (gross of fees). Although the Fund aims to deliver this return over the medium term, there is no guarantee that this will be achieved over this time period, or any time period. The Fund’s capital is at risk. The Fund invests on a global basis at least 80% of its total assets in fixed income securities (such as bonds), money-market instruments (i.e. debt securities with short term maturities), equity securities (e.g. shares), funds, deposits and cash.
