Overview

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

The Fund aims to provide an income with the potential for capital growth over the long term (5 years or more).

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.

Less

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.

Documents

  • ​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.
  • If a Fund has a high exposure to a particular country or geographical region it carries a higher level of risk than a Fund which is more broadly diversified.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Some or all of the ongoing charges may be taken from capital, which may erode capital or reduce potential for capital growth.
  • 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, you may wish to consult a financial adviser.
  • If you invest through a third party provider you are advised to consult them directly as charges, performance and terms and conditions may differ materially.
