The Fund aims to provide an income in excess of 80% of the income generated by the MSCI ACWI High Dividend Yield Index over any 3 year period with the potential for capital growth over the long term (5 years or more).
The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in shares (also known as equities) of companies, of any size, 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 income for the Fund.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the MSCI ACWI High Dividend Yield Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund's income target. 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 Global Equity Income sector average, which is based on a peer group of broadly similar funds, may also provide a useful comparator.
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.
