Morningstar ratings are based on the representative share class of this fund and are dated to the last month-end upon availability from Morningstar.



The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the MSCI World Index by at least 2% per annum, before the deduction of charges, over any 5 year period.


The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in shares (also known as equities) of mainly larger companies, in any industry, in any country.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including cash and money market instruments.
The investment manager may use derivatives (complex financial instruments) to reduce risk, to manage the Fund more efficiently, or to generate additional capital or income for the Fund.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the MSCI World Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund’s performance target. The investment manager has discretion to choose individual investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index, but at times the Fund may hold investments similar to the index. The investment manager will seek to maintain the portfolio with sector weightings close to those of the index.


The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
Potential investors must read the prospectus, and where relevant, the key investor information document before investing.

  • The value of the Funds and the income from them is not guaranteed and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.
  • Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
  • Third party data is believed to be reliable, but its completeness and accuracy is not guaranteed.
  • Shares can lose value rapidly, and typically involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. The value of your investment may fall as a result.
  • Shares of small and mid-size companies can be more volatile than shares of larger companies, and at times it may be difficult to value or to sell shares at desired times and prices, increasing the risk of losses.
  • If a Fund has a high exposure to a particular country or geographical region it carries a higher level of risk than a Fund which is more broadly diversified.
  • The Fund may use derivatives with the aim of reducing risk or managing the portfolio more efficiently. However this introduces other risks, in particular, that a derivative counterparty may not meet its contractual obligations.
  • If the Fund holds assets in currencies other than the base currency of the Fund or you invest in a share class of a different currency to the Fund (unless 'hedged'), the value of your investment may be impacted by changes in exchange rates.
  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Fund.
  • Funds incur costs as a necessary part of buying and selling the underlying investments, these are otherwise known as portfolio transaction costs, and include charges such as broker commission and Stamp Duty.
  • For detailed product information including the risks associated with investing please read the relevant Prospectus or Annual Report.
  • Before investing in any of our funds you should satisfy yourself as to the suitability and the risks involved.
