Fund Objective

The objective of the Fund is to achieve capital growth. The Fund invests primarily in shares of UK smaller companies. The Fund may use derivatives (complex instruments) to manage the Fund more efficiently, with the aim of reducing risk, minimising costs and/or generating additional capital or income. The Fund is actively managed within its objectives and is not constrained by a benchmark. The reference to (UK) in the Fund name only relates to the Fund’s domicile and is unrelated to the Fund’s objectives and investment policy. The return of the Fund depends on the value of the assets it invests in and the income they generate. Any income from your investment will be reinvested.
