A collaborative and risk-orientated approach
The aim of the Fund is to provide income with the potential to grow the amount you invested over the medium to long term.
The Fund will invest at least two-thirds of its assets so as to gain global exposure to company shares, bonds (which are similar to a loan and pay a fixed or variable interest rate) and property. The amount of the Fund that is invested in the different asset types will vary over time as the Fund seeks to achieve its aim.
The Fund will invest in shares and bonds indirectly through regulated and unregulated funds. The Fund may also invest in these assets directly or indirectly by using derivatives. Derivatives are sophisticated investment instruments linked to the rise and fall of the price of other assets.
The Fund’s exposure to commodities and property will be gained indirectly through other funds, related securities, or by using derivatives. Commodities are physical materials such as oil, agricultural products, and metals.
The following benchmarks are currently used as a point of reference against which the Fund’s performance may be compared: Peer Group: Many funds sold in the UK are grouped into sectors by the Investment Association (the trade body that represents UK investment managers), to facilitate comparison between funds with broadly similar characteristics (peer groups). This Fund is currently included in the IA Mixed Investment 20-60% Sharers sector. Index: A composite index comprised of 40% MSCI World Index, 40% Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate (Hedged to GBP) Index and 20% MSCI UK Monthly Property Index is currently considered to provide a suitably weighted performance measure of global equities, global investment grade bonds (hedged to sterling) and directly held UK property respectively.
