Our view on this fund

HL Research

This fund mainly invests in large and medium-sized gold mining companies. It's managed by an experienced and well-resourced team. We think it's a reasonable choice for exposure to this specialist area.

A focus on a single, specialist sector can cause significant volatility though. Overall we prefer to invest with fund managers...

Fund Objective

BlackRock Gold and General Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital growth primarily through an actively managed portfolio of gold mining, commodity and precious-metal related shares. The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities and units in collective investment schemes.Derivatives may also be used for the purposes of efficient portfolio management.
