Fund Objective

To provide capital growth through investment in a broad range of asset classes across global markets. This is one of a range of actively managed Global Strategy Portfolios offered at five different risk levels. The Fund is rated as 3, where 1 is a lower level of risk and 5 is a higher level of risk. The Fund is managed with the aim of maximising returns in line with its agreed long term risk profile therefore any potential gains are likely to be limited by the risk profile of the Fund. To achieve its objective the Fund invests primarily in collective investment schemes, including exchange traded funds, which generally aim to track the performance of market indices. Such assets shall, in turn, invest in equities, fixed interest securities and property securities that make up the relevant index. The collective investment schemes that the Fund invests in will, where possible, be those managed or operated by the ACD or an associate of the ACD. Where this is not possible the Fund may invest in collective investment schemes operated by third party fund providers. The Fund may also invest directly in equities, fixed interest securities and property securities where exposure to an asset class can be adequately achieved with a relatively low number of holdings. The Fund may also invest in money market instruments, deposits and cash to manage day-to-day cash flow requirements. Additionally, the Fund may use exchange traded and over the counter derivatives and forward currency contracts for efficient portfolio management, including hedging, purposes and for investment purposes. Investing in derivatives for investment purposes means, in particular, maintaining positions in these investments for the long term rather than just for tactical short-term purposes. However, it is envisaged that the use of derivatives for investment purposes will not be extensive and will not affect the overall risk profile of the Fund. The starting point for the Global Strategy Portfolios is the Strategic Asset Allocation (SAA). SAA is the long-term blend of assets for each risk level; i.e. that which is expected to maximise returns for a given level of portfolio risk. The SAA provides the reference point around which the Global Strategy Portfolios can then be managed. The SAA is reviewed periodically to ensure the portfolios continue to match their long-term risk profiles. Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA) is another layer on top of the SAA and is driven by the investment team’s shorter term market outlook. It aims to provide timely adjustments to the portfolios’ allocations to reflect the team’s views on the current market environment. The TAA positions are regularly monitored and scrutinised. Portfolio Implementation is the final stage in the investment process, where we decide how best to take exposure to each asset class. Implementation aims to effectively capture the characteristics of each asset class on a cost-efficient basis. This may be achieved by investing in collective investment schemes, investing directly in asset classes and investing in derivatives. The Fund aims to meet its objective with a focus on lower ongoing charges. The focus on lower ongoing charges is taken into consideration when deciding which asset classes the Fund will invest in and how the Fund achieves exposure to those asset classes.
