To provide capital growth through diversified investment across global markets with a bias towards fixed interest securities.This is one of five actively managed Global Strategy Portfolios offered at five different risk levels. The Fund is rated as 2, where 1 is a lower level of risk and 5 is a higher level of risk.The Fund is managed in line with its agreed long term risk profile and is periodically rebalanced.

Such assets shall, in turn, invest in fixed interest securities, equities, 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 fixed interest securities, equities 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.

Forward currency contracts may be used to gain exposure to currencies or for hedging to reduce the impact of currency movements for certain asset classes that are not denominated in Sterling.Under normal market conditions, the portfolio will have the following asset class exposures.
