To achieve an income return in excess of typical income returned from UK equity markets by investing principally in a portfolio of equities of companies based in the UK, conducting business in the UK or listed on the UK stock market. The Fund may also invest, at the managers' discretion, in a selection of fixed income assets, cash and near cash and derivative instruments. The fund may, on occasion, also invest in non-UK assets, however any such investments would not be hedged, rather the currency risk would be a specific part of the investment decision.
