Summary of Fund Objective

The Fund’s investment objective is to achieve long-term capital appreciation, targeting a yearly average return of 5% (net of fees) over the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (EURIBOR) over a rolling three year period. The Fund aims to achieve its objective with an annualised volatility ranging, under normal market conditions, between 8% and 11%. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its return objective, nor that it will remain within the aimed-for volatility range.

What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund invests directly or indirectly (through financial derivative instruments, structured products or collective investment schemes) in equity and fixed income securities, cash and equivalents, and (indirectly only) alternative investments (including commodities or property), with an aim to have a higher proportion of equity securities vs. other assets. Such securities and investment instruments have historically been subject to price movements due to such factors as general stock market volatility, sudden changes in interest rates, changes in the financial outlook or perceived creditworthiness of securities issuers, or fluctuations in commodity prices or real estate values. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate over time.
  • The Fund may distribute income gross of expenses. Whilst this might allow more income to be distributed, it may also have the effect of reducing capital.
  • Other significant risks include:
    Credit risk: the risk of loss arising from default that may occur if an issuer fails to make principal or interest payments when due. This risk is higher if the Fund holds low-rated, sub-investment-grade securities.
    Foreign Currency risk: the risk of loss arising from exchange-rate fluctuations or due to exchange control regulations. Derivative Instruments risk: the risk of loss in an instrument where a small change in the value of the underlying investment may have a larger impact on the value of such instrument. Derivatives may involve additional liquidity, credit and counterparty risks.
