The fund aims to deliver a higher total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) with smaller fluctuations in returns on average, than company shares from around the world, over rolling periods of three to five years. The fund managers follow a highly flexible investment approach, with the freedom to invest in different types of assets. The approach combines in-depth research to determine the value of assets over the medium to long term, with analysis of investors’ emotional reaction to events to identify investment opportunities. The fund gains access to assets directly and indirectly through derivatives.
