The Fund aims to provide a return, from a combination of income and capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the 50% FTSE All Share + 50% ICE Bank of America Sterling Non Gilt Index by 1.5% per annum, before the deduction of charges, over any 5 year period.
The Fund invests in shares (also known as equities) and bonds of governments, companies or any other type of issuer, in any country. At all times the investment in equities will be limited to a maximum of 60% of the value of the Fund’s portfolio and the Fund will normally have a strong bias towards UK companies and bonds. Companies and bond issuers may be of any size, in any industry.
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 or to manage the Fund more efficiently.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the 50% FTSE All Share + 50% ICE Bank of America Sterling Non Gilt Index, which is broadly representative of the securities in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund's performance target. The investment manager has a high degree of freedom to choose individual investments for the Fund.
As an additional means of assessing the performance of the Fund, the IA Mixed Investment 20-60% Shares sector average, which is based on a peer group of broadly similar funds, may also provide a useful comparator. Investors should note that many funds in the sector peer group have a more global focus than the Fund.
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.
