The fund aims to provide capital growth. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in shares of UK companies. The fund has no bias to any particular industry. The fund invests in medium-sized companies, listed in the FTSE 250 Index, that can potentially offer faster rates of profit and dividend growth and higher long-term returns than their larger counterparts. The fund's focus is on those with pricing power - the ability to raise prices (and subsequently grow profits) because demand is exceeding supply. Furthermore, we look for well-financed companies, with strong business models, experienced management teams and attractive prospects on a three-year view. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to reduce risk or manage the fund more effectively.
