Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide income and capital growth. The fund aims to deliver a target income of 7% per year but this is not guaranteed and could change depending on market conditions. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in shares of UK companies. The fund has no bias to any particular industry or size of company. The fund invests in 'value' stocks – those whose share prices appear low relative to their long-term profit potential, and which are typically paying an attractive and growing dividend. The fund generates its income from two sources; dividends received from shares in companies; and cash received from selling some potential future growth of the fund's holdings using derivatives. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives will be used to achieve the investment objective and to reduce risk or manage the fund more efficiently. The strategy will typically underperform a similar portfolio without derivatives in periods when the underlying stock prices are rising, and outperform when the underlying stock prices are falling.
