Introduction

The fund aims to provide long term growth whilst investing in a diversified portfolio of equities and bonds. These assets can be from both the UK and overseas. The fund is predominantly equity based (with a bias towards the UK) and may also invest in government, corporate and other bonds. It is actively managed by our investment team, who will vary the proportions held in each asset class to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Past performance is not a guide to future returns and future returns are not guaranteed. The price of assets and the income from them may go down as well as up and cannot be guaranteed; an investor may receive back less than their original investment. The fund will routinely use derivatives to reduce risk or cost, or to generate additional capital or income at low risk. Usage of derivatives is monitored to ensure that the fund is not exposed to excessive or unintended risks. The value of assets held within the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
