Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in equities of UK companies that have suffered a severe setback in either share price or profitability. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in equities of UK companies. The fund applies a disciplined value investment approach, seeking to invest in a select portfolio of companies that the manager believes are significantly undervalued relative to their long-term earnings potential. Recovery investments can be out of favour for many reasons, including weak short-term profitability, macro-economic concerns or an under strength balance sheet. These factors can significantly reduce the attractiveness of companies to short term investors and induce discounts to fair value. The Manager's recovery investment approach seeks to exploit this in a diversified manner. The fund may also invest in collective investment schemes and warrants, and hold cash. The fund may use derivatives with the aim of achieving investment gains, reducing risk or managing the fund more efficiently.
