Quarterly update

Watch the investment team recap this quarter.

(Note: Filmed in July 2023).


The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term (5 years or more).


The Fund invests in shares (also known as equities) and bonds of companies and issuers, in any industry, in any country, and will normally have significant allocations to the UK. The Fund also invests in developed market G7 government bonds. The Investment Manager seeks to identify companies with attractive long-term business models offering the potential for good capital returns over the long term. The equity element of the fund consists of one underlying allocation of UK shares and one underlying allocation of global shares. The allocation of Global shares in the Fund will invest in companies that derive at least 50% of their revenues from products and services that are considered by the investment manager as contributing to positive environmental or social change and thereby have an impact on the development of a sustainable global economy. The Investment Manager applies exclusionary screens (in some cases subject to thresholds) to avoid companies involved in business activities that may be environmentally and/or socially harmful, as detailed in the “Exclusionary Approach” section in the Prospectus.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including cash.
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 IA Mixed Investment 40 - 85% Shares sector average, which is based on a peer group of broadly similar funds, as this limits the level of exposure the Fund may have to company shares. The investment manager has a high degree of freedom to choose individual investments for the Fund and to vary allocations between asset types within the constraints of the sector.


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 does not predict future returns.
  • Third party data is believed to be reliable, but its completeness and accuracy is not guaranteed.
  • Shares/Units 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.
  • An issuer of a bond (or money market instrument) may become unable or unwilling to pay interest or repay capital to the Fund. If this happens or the market perceives this may happen, the value of the bond will fall.
  • When interest rates rise (or fall), the prices of different securities will be affected differently. In particular, bond values generally fall when interest rates rise (or are expected to rise). This risk is typically greater the longer the maturity of a bond investment.
  • The Fund follows a responsible investment approach, which may cause it to be underweight in certain sectors (due to the avoidance criteria employed) and thus perform differently than funds that have a similar financial objective but which do not apply any avoidance criteria when selecting investments.
  • 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/unit class of a different currency to the Fund (unless hedged, i.e. mitigated by taking an offsetting position in a related security), the value of your investment may be impacted by changes in exchange rates.
  • Securities within the Fund could become hard to value or to sell at a desired time and price, especially in extreme market conditions when asset prices may be falling, increasing the risk of investment losses.
  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which the Fund trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations, or as a result of failure or delay in operational processes or the failure of a third party provider.
  • 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.
  • Before investing in any of our funds you should satisfy yourself as to the suitability and the risks involved.
