Fund Objective

The Fund aims to achieve a positive absolute return over the long-term regardless of market conditions. The Fund aims to typically deliver absolute (more than zero) returns over a rolling 12 month period. An absolute return performance is not guaranteed over this specific, or any other, time period and consequently capital is in fact at risk. The Fund will typically invest at least 60% of its total assets, by taking long and short positions in equities or equity related derivative contracts of: companies having their registered office in the UK; and companies that do not have their registered office in the UK but either (i) carry out a predominant proportion of their business activity in these markets, or (ii) are holding companies which predominantly own companies with registered offices in the UK, or (iii) are a constituent of the FTSE All Share Index.
