The portfolio can hold companies of any size but has a strong bias towards large capacity.

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.
If a trust's portfolio is concentrated towards a particular country or geographical region, the investment carries greater risk than a portfolio diversified across more countries.
The trust may have a particularly concentrated portfolio (low number of holdings) relative to its investment universe and an adverse event impacting only a small number of holdings can create significant volatility or losses for the trust.
Where the trust invests in assets which are denominated in currencies other than the base currency then currency exchange rate movements may cause the value of investments to fall as well as rise.
This trust is suitable to be used as one component in several in a diversified investment portfolio. Investors should consider carefully the proportion of their portfolio invested into this trust.
Active management techniques that have worked well in normal market conditions could prove ineffective or detrimental at other times.
The trust could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the trust.
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.
The return on your investment is directly related to the prevailing market price of the trust’s shares, which will trade at a varying discount (or premium) relative to the value of the underlying assets of the trust. As a result losses (or gains) may be higher or lower than those of the trust’s assets.
The trust may use gearing as part of its investment strategy. If the trust utilises its ability to gear, the profits and losses incured by the trust can be greater than those of a trust that does not use gearing.
The Company confirms that it currently conducts its affairs so that its ordinary shares of 50p each can be recommended by IFAs to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
The shares are excluded from the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are shares in an investment trust.
