Fund Objective

The objective of the Fund is to achieve long term total returns in excess of the Benchmark Index which is the FTSE All Share Index. The reference to total return means the return from the combination of capital growth and income. The combination of these returns aims to be more than the total return from the Benchmark Index over the medium to long term, which should be seen as five years plus. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a positive return over this, or any other, period and investors may not get back the original amount they invested.
