Summary of upcoming change to investment policy


Investment Objective

This Fund targets an average annual return of 5% after the deduction of ongoing fund charges, over a typical market cycle of 5-7 years. The return target assumes the deduction of the ongoing charges figure (OCF) on the W share class. There is no guarantee that the target will be achieved by the Fund.

Investment Policy

The Fund provides global exposure to a diversified range of assets (including bonds, equities, alternatives and commodities) by investing at least 70% into funds (including those operated by Fidelity). The Fund has exposure to both higher risk investments( such as global equities, global emerging market equities, global smaller companies and global property securities) and lower risk investments (such as debt instruments including global government bonds, global corporate bonds and cash) meaning that there is a moderate risk of capital losses and an investor may not get back the full amount invested. The Fund typically invests more than 65% in sub-funds of an Irish UCITS fund (Fidelity Common Contractual Fund II) operated by Fidelity which subsequently utilise the experience and specialisms of a number of investment managers (which may include Fidelity) to manage the underlying assets. The exposure may be less than 65% depending on market conditions. The Fund is actively managed without reference to a benchmark. The Fund can also invest directly into transferable securities, money market instruments, cash and deposits, and is also able to use derivatives for efficient portfolio management and investment purposes. Asset allocation exposure of the Fund will be actively managed within the following parameters: 20-60% equity, 5-80% debt instruments (which may include investment grade bonds, sub-investment grade bonds and emerging market debt), 0-20% commodities, 0-30% cash and 0-30% alternatives (such as infrastructure securities and Real Estate Investment Trusts).
