The Fund aims to deliver attractive, positive returns, comprising both income and capital growth, over the long term (at least 5 years). The Fund will compare its performance against SONIA (90 day compounded). In addition the Fund seeks to generate returns of SONIA (90 day compounded) + 4.5% gross of fees over an annualised five year period. For performance reporting purposes, the share class is measured against the currency equivalent which is SONIA (90 day compounded).
The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by obtaining exposure to a broad range of different types of asset, including shares, bonds and real assets, such as property, infrastructure and commodities. To the extent permitted the Fund may take this exposure directly, via other collective investment schemes or through the use of appropriate derivative instruments. Underlying funds, including ETFs, are selected based on assessments including liquidity, trading costs and representation of underlying index exposure.
