Fund Objective

The investment objective of the Trust is to generate an annual income of 2.5% above the income generated from a global equity market average (as measured by the MSCI All Countries World Index) together with the potential for capital growth over the medium to long term. In addition the Trust will seek to manage risk with a target of half the volatility of global equities over rolling three year periods. There is no guarantee that these targets will be met.
