Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide capital growth and income by investing in a diversified range of assets and markets worldwide, whilst aiming to maintain the fund's risk rating classification as set by Distribution Technology (DT). The fund is part of the Schroder Dynamic Planner Portfolio range of funds. The funds seek to achieve a targeted level of risk from '1' which is classified as the lowest risk to '10' which is classified as the highest risk, based on risk ratings provided by DT. The fund has a DT risk rating classification of '5'. The fund may invest up to 100% of its assets in collective investment schemes, exchange traded funds, closed ended investment schemes and real estate investment trusts, which themselves invest worldwide in any of the following equities bonds and alternative assets. Alternative assets may include funds that use absolute return strategies or funds that invest in real estate, commodities or private equity. Investments are selected after rigorous assessment of each underlying fund's portfolio, its fund manager's style and how investments are made over the economic cycle. In seeking to meet its targeted level of risk the investment manager may alter the level of the fund's investments in various asset types. The asset allocation boundaries are set with reference to research carried out by DT and are based on the long term historic return and volatility of each asset type. The fund's returns may be constrained by the aim to achieve its risk target. The fund may invest more than 25% of its assets in collective investment schemes managed by Schroders.
