Fund Objective

The Fund seeks to provide capital growth and income over the long term (a period of at least 5 years)*]The Fund invests at least 70% of its assets in other funds which can be passively or actively managed. Barclays single-asset class funds are the primary building blocks for each multi-asset fund. The Fund is classified as ‘Defensive’ or risk profile 1 in the Barclays Multi-Asset fund range (which includes Funds with risk profiles from 1 to 5). The Fund’s assets will be invested in other funds which invest in lower risk assets such as fixed income securities and money-market instruments. It may also invest in funds which invest in equities, cash, deposits, derivatives, property and commodities. The Fund’s allocation to different asset classes will vary over time through the Investment Managers active asset allocation policy. The Investment Manager will not select assets with reference to an Index or benchmark. The Investment Manager determines the asset allocation using their short-term (tactical) and long-term (strategic) views of the future performance of these asset classes. The Fund invests in assets denominated in various currencies. Currency hedging is undertaken for certain assets in order to minimize the impact of currency fluctuations.
