The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term (5 years or more).
The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in a concentrated portfolio of shares (also known as equities) of companies, of any size, in any industry, in the UK. Companies will be incorporated, headquartered, or deriving significant revenue from, the UK. The portfolio may be concentrated in terms of its number of holdings and/or the size of its largest holdings.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including other shares, bonds (including convertible bonds), preference shares, 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 FTSE All Share Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this can provide a useful comparator for assessing the Fund's performance. The investment manager has discretion to choose investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index.
As an additional means of assessing the performance of the Fund, the IA UK All Companies sector average, which is based on a peer group of broadly similar funds, may also provide a useful comparator.
The investment manager seeks to identify high quality, cash generative growth companies that may be mispriced by the market. The fund focuses on companies that have attractive market positions, healthy balance sheets, and demonstrate robust and growing levels of cash flow. Close attention is also paid to management's ability and willingness to invest capital in a sensible and consistent manner. The fund invests in small, medium and large companies with the flexibility to have a significant bias towards medium or smaller-sized companies. The reference to Alpha in the Fund’s name reflects the managers active approach to investment.
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.
