Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide capital growth. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in a concentrated range of shares of UK companies. The fund has no bias to any particular industry or size of company. 'Alpha' funds invest in companies in which we have a high conviction that the current share price does not reflect the future prospects for that business. The fund will typically hold between 50 and 60 companies. The fund will invest in companies which offer the best combination of value and quality in the market. Attention is paid to balance sheet strength, cash generation and where the company is in the business cycle. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to reduce risk or manage the fund more effectively.
