Aim:

The Fund aims to generate positive returns over a rolling 36 month basis. However, there is no guarantee that this objective will be achieved over that specific, or any, time period and there is always a risk of loss to your original capital.

The Fund sits in the Investment Association Targeted Absolute Return sector with an emphasis on trying to deliver absolute returns with significantly lower volatility than the global stockmarket, represented by the FTSE All World Index. The Fund’s performance is not expected to be reliant on particular market conditions. The investment team aims to achieve the fund’s objectives by investing in a portfolio which is diversified across different investment themes, investment strategies, asset classes, geographies and markets.


An Extraordinary General Meeting was held on 28 April 2016 where Shareholders approved a change of investment objective of the fund, from aiming to generate positive returns over a rolling 12 month basis to aiming to generate positive returns over a rolling 36 month basis.


In brief:

  • Aims to produce positive returns over rolling 36 month periods, even if stock markets have fallen over the period
  • Aims to deliver positive returns with significantly less volatility than global stock markets
  • Diversified portfolio of global assets and investment strategies
  • Actively managed
  • Experienced fund manager with proven absolute return fund track record
