Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide capital growth and income. The fund invests in other funds, which themselves invest in shares and bonds and/or money market instruments traded world-wide. This fund is aimed at investors looking for a flexible product that accesses a broad range of assets and financial markets. The fund seeks to generate attractive returns over the long-term by blending a diversified selection of funds managed by Schroders and other investment managers. This 'fund of funds' approach allows us to tap into a blend of investment ideas across the industry. The portfolio balances an exposure to higher risk / higher growth assets like equities with lower risk assets like bonds. Allocation to asset classes and regions will be adjusted according to Schroders' Multi-Asset Team's views on the economy and markets in order to enhance returns for investors. Allocation to the underlying managers will change based on in-depth fund research carried out within the team. The fund may also invest directly in shares and bonds (with a bias to the UK market), money market instruments and hold cash on deposit. The fund may gain exposure to alternative asset classes, including, but not limited to, real estate, commodities, hedge funds and private equity. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to achieve the investment objective and to reduce risk or manage the fund more effectively.
