Investment Objective The Sub-fund aims to outperform (after deduction of costs) the Numis Smaller Companies Index (excluding Investment Companies) by at least 2% per annum over rolling five-year periods. Investment Policy The Sub-fund will invest at least 80% in the shares of smaller UK companies, being those which are incorporated, domiciled or conduct a significant portion of their business in the UK. The Sub-fund will be actively managed and will invest in any sector. The Sub-fund may also invest in smaller companies which are listed, quoted or traded in the UK. The smaller companies in which the Sub-fund invests will typically have a market capitalisation of less than £1 billion at the time of initial purchase. To the extent that the Sub-fund is not fully invested in shares of smaller companies, the Sub-fund may also invest in other transferable securities of smaller companies, deposits and cash. The Sub-fund may not invest in or otherwise use derivatives.
