The Fund aims to provide an income 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 the UK. Companies will be incorporated, headquartered, or deriving significant revenue from, the UK. The Investment Manager seeks to identify companies with attractive long-term business models offering the potential for good dividend growth and capital returns over the long term. 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 hold cash and other shares.
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 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 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.
