Fund Objective

To achieve long-term growth of investors' capital and income through an appropriate portfolio of equities and predominantly investment grade fixed interest securities, acquired on the basis of value and not popularity or fashion and with patience in mind. Though there will be a general emphasis on a fair immediate yield, the Fund may occasionally buy securities which do not pay dividends. The Investment Advisers to the Manager will undertake their own security analysis (rather than relying on external research sources or commentary) and form their own views as to the merits of specific securities. The pattern of operations will concentrate upon investment grade sterling bonds of companies, corporations, public bodies, institutions and sovereign issuers and the equities of corporations considered by the investment advisers to represent sound long-term value. At times it may be appropriate for the Scheme not to be fully invested but to hold cash and near cash. The Scheme will have powers to borrow as specified in CIS and the Manager may, where it deems appropriate, undertake hedging transactions for the purpose of efficient portfolio management; these transactions will not be speculative.
