Objective

The fund aims to provide income and some capital growth over the longer term by investing in UK equities. The fund typically holds a concentrated portfolio of stocks and may also hold a proportion in bonds to supplement the income of the fund. The fund is actively managed by our investment team, who will select stocks, without reference to index weight or size, to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Due to the unconstrained nature of the fund investors must be willing to accept a relatively high degree of stock specific risk.
