Our view on this fund
This is a relatively aggressive 'absolute return' fund run by an experienced and knowledgeable UK smaller companies specialist we regard highly. It focuses primarily on medium-sized and smaller companies. While its returns are likely to be less volatile than the UK stockmarket more generally, investors need to be prepared to...
The fund aims to provide capital growth. Absolute return means the fund seeks to provide a positive return over 3 year periods in all market conditions, but this cannot be guaranteed and your capital is at risk. At least 80% of the fund will be exposed, long or short, to UK companies, with a bias towards small and
medium-sized firms. The fund has no bias to any particular industry. We use a bottom-up stock picking approach with the aim of generating fund returns that are independent of movements in the market as a whole. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to achieve the investment objective and to reduce risk or manage the fund more efficiently. The fund may use leverage and take short positions.
