Objective

The Fund aims to provide a yield significantly higher than that offered by the major UK equity indices with some long term capital growth. We will achieve this higher income by investing in equities with an above average yield rather than investing in fixed interest securities. The ACD may invest up to 10% of the portfolio overseas.
