Fund Objective

The fund aims to achieve an absolute return by investing in equities of UK companies. Absolute return means the fund seeks to provide a positive return over rolling 12-month periods in all market conditions, but this cannot be guaranteed over this or longer periods and your capital is at risk. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets, long or short, in equities of UK companies which are constituents of the FTSE All Share Index or the Alternative Investment Market. The fund invests at least 50% of its assets in small and medium sized companies. Small and medium sized companies are companies which, at the time of purchase, are considered to be in the bottom 80% by market capitalisation of the UK equities market. The fund has no bias to any particular industry. Derivatives may be used to seek to achieve investment gains, to reduce risk or to manage the fund more efficiently. The fund may use leverage and take short positions. The fund may also hold cash.
