All calculations are in GBP unless stated

Managed by

Iain Stewart

Iain Stewart joined Newton in 1985 as an investment manager after completing a doctorate with the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. He is currently a senior member of Newton’s strategy team and has responsibility for the development of global investment themes as well as running the firm’s Absolute Intrepid fund and the flagship Newton Balanced fund , which has a greater focus on downside protection.

Objective

The objective of the Sub-Fund is to achieve significant real rates of return in Sterling terms predominantly from a portfolio of UK and international securities. The Sub-Fund is managed to seek a minimum return of cash (1 month GBP LIBOR) +4% per annum over 5 years before fees. In so doing we aim to achieve a positive return on a rolling 3 year basis. However, a positive return is not guaranteed and a capital loss may occur. The Sub-Fund may also invest in deposits, approved money market instruments, derivative instruments, forward transactions and collective investment schemes.
