The fund aims to achieve long-term growth by investing mainly in multi-manager funds. The fund will invest up to a maximum of 85% in equity funds with a moderate proportion in fixed interest security funds (the fixed interest security funds will invest mainly in high quality fixed interest securities, including corporate bonds). The equity and fixed interest security funds will invest in UK and overseas markets. The multi-manager funds are currently provided by a subsidiary of Aberdeen Asset Management and by the Russell Investment Group. Exposure to the multimanager funds is currently provided through the Scottish Widows Progressive Portfolio OEIC Fund although investment may be made through other unit-linked funds, collective investment schemes, or directly to meet the stated fund aims.
