Fund Objective

The fund aims to grow capital from a diversified portfolio of around 60 investment companies offering access to the UK and overseas, investing at least 80% of the fund in investment trust companies listed in the UK. The fund manager invests in those areas and investment vehicles that he believes can deliver the most growth over five years or more. The selection of stocks is based on the investment philosophy and objective of the underlying holdings and the ability of each manager to deliver on them, as well as the valuation of the shares.
