Fund Objective

Charifund is designed to provide a growing level of income for UK charities, while at the same time protecting their capital from the effects of inflation over a rolling ten year period. It aims to provide a level of income that is significantly higher than that of the FTSE All-Share Index. The level of income may vary and there is no guarantee that the trust will achieve a positive return over this, or any other, period. The trust is a well-diversified portfolio of approximately 100 holdings, mainly high yielding UK company shares. While the trust will generally have a bias towards stocks that are out-of-favour with investors, the fund manager seeks to identify good quality companies with attractive dividend growth prospects.
