Fund Objective

The Investment Objective of the Fund is to increase the value of your investment, through a combination of income and capital growth.The Fund will achieve its Investment Objective by investing in regulated collective investment schemes, as well as cash. These schemes (the ‘underlying funds’) will be selected according to our assessment of the performance and risk characteristics of the fund, the underlying fund manager’s investment process, and the strength of the management team. In addition the Fund may also invest in derivative instruments (including forward transactions) in order to achieve its investment objective.The underlying funds will predominantly invest in global equities and bonds, with global equities never exceeding 30% of the Fund. In addition underlying funds may be selected which invest in commercial property and commodities. Underlying funds may also be selected which aim to generate returns that are specified in fixed percentage terms, or which have return targets relative to cash. Funds that are managed passively (for example to track a particular stock market index) may also be selected.
