Current investment objective and policy

Revised investment objective and policy

Objective

The objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth over a period of at least 5 years from a portfolio diversified across a range of assets. The Fund is managed to seek a return in excess of cash (1 Month GBP LIBOR) +3% per annum over five years before fees. In doing so, it aims to achieve a positive return on a rolling three year basis (meaning a period of three years, no matter which day you start on). However, a positive return is not guaranteed and a capital loss may occur.


Policy

The Fund uses sterling cash (1 month GBP LIBOR) +3% per annum over five years before fees as a target set for the Fund’s performance to match or exceed.


The ACD considers 1 month GBP LIBOR +3% per annum over five years before fees to be an appropriate target because 1 month GBP LIBOR is representative of cash and the Fund’s investment objective is to seek a return in excess of sterling cash +3% per annum.
