Fund Objective

The Fund aims to achieve a positive absolute return on a 12 month basis through a combination of capital growth and income on your investment regardless of market conditions. The Fund will be managed with the aim of delivering absolute (more than zero) returns on a 12 month basis in any market conditions. However, an absolute return is not guaranteed over a 12 month or any period and the Fund may experience periods of negative return. The Fund’s capital is at risk. The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in equity securities (e.g. shares) and other equity-related securities (including derivatives, which are contracts the value of which is based on one or more underlying assets) and, when determined appropriate, fixed income (FI) securities (such as bonds), money market instruments (MMIs) (i.e. debt securities with short term maturities), deposits and cash.
