The fund aims to provide capital growth and income by investing in equity and equity related securities of UK companies. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in a concentrated range of equities of UK companies. These are companies that are incorporated, headquartered or have their principal business activities in the UK. The fund typically holds 30 to 50 companies. The fund follows a responsible investment approach by using the Schroder Responsible Value UK Equity Fund Responsible Investment Policy, a process by which companies are vetted against certain responsible standards. The Responsible Investment Policy applies investment restrictions on companies involved in military products and services, non-military firearms, pornography, tobacco, gambling, alcoholic drinks, high interest rate lending and human embryonic cloning. The investment manager also assesses companies on their environmental and social impact as well as the strength of their corporate governance. The fund focuses on companies that have certain "Value" characteristics. Value is assessed by looking at indicators such as cash flows, dividends and earnings to identify securities which the manager believes have been undervalued by the market. The fund may also invest in collective investment schemes, bonds and warrants, and hold cash. The fund may use derivatives with the aim of achieving investment gains, reducing risk or managing the fund more efficiently.
