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 who have the freedom to dip in and out of specialist areas as and when they spot opportunities, rather than those who have to be fully invested in those areas all the time.
