The Fund aims to provide a return over the long term, through the combination of investment growth and income. It looks to outperform the FTSE All-Share Index over rolling 3-year periods, after the deduction of charges.The Fund is actively managed, and invests at least 90% of its assets in shares of companies listed on the London Stock Exchange; predominantly UK companies.The Fund selects companies considered to offer good total return opportunities (the combination of share price growth and dividend income), from any industry or economic sector. Whilst there is no restriction on size, investment focuses on the largest 150 companies included in the FTSE All-Share Index.The FTSE All-Share Index is regarded as an appropriate performance measure of the UK stock market, with over 600 companies currently included. It provides a suitable target benchmark against which the performance of the Fund will be measured and evaluated over time.The Fund is relatively concentrated, and typically invests in fewer than 55 companies, which may include shares of some companies not within the Index. The Fund may also invest in other assets such as cash and deposits, and hold other funds (including funds managed by Columbia Threadneedle companies) when deemed appropriate.
