Fund Objective

Investment Objective The Sub-fund aims to outperform (after deduction of costs) a composite index comprising 60% UK and 40% overseas equities, as stated in Sterling, by at least 1% per annum over rolling five-year periods. The composite index is calculated by Baillie Gifford and comprises: 60% FTSE All Share Index and 40% overseas. The overseas element is currently made up of 28% FTSE North America Index; 28% FTSE Europe (ex UK) Index; 28% MSCI Pacific Index and 16% MSCI Emerging Markets Index. Investment Policy The Sub-fund will invest at least 90% directly or indirectly in shares of UK and overseas companies. The indirect investment will be through collective investment schemes (including those managed or operated by the ACD). The Sub-fund will be actively managed and may invest in shares of companies from any country, sector and in shares of companies of any size, however the Sub-fund will have a bias to UK companies. The proportion of the Sub-fund invested in UK and non-UK shares will be at the investment manager’s discretion but the Sub-fund will invest a minimum of 45% in UK shares and 25% in non-UK shares. To the extent that the Sub-fund is not fully invested directly or indirectly in such shares, the Sub-fund may also invest in other transferable securities of both UK and overseas companies, money market instruments, deposits and cash. The Sub-fund may not invest in or otherwise use derivatives.
