Fund objective
The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in equity and equity-related securities of companies in the United Kingdom. The investment policy of the Fund is to invest primarily in equities and equity-related securities of companies that are constituents of the FTSE All Share Index. The Fund will use a variety of quantitative techniques and adopt a disciplined approach to stock selection whilst seeking to maintain a level of risk similar to that of the FTSE All Share Index. Equity-related securities include but are not limited to depository receipts, convertible securities, equity-linked notes (debt securities linked to the performance of an equity security) warrants, and bonds convertible into common or preferred shares. The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, cash, near cash, deposits, shares in collective investment schemes (including other funds managed by the Investment Adviser or its affiliates) and derivatives.

?FE Risk Scores measure the riskiness of instruments relative to the FTSE 100 index of shares.

Risk statistics
Alpha
?Alpha is a measure of a fund's over- or under-performance by comparison to its benchmark. If the Alpha is 5, the fund has outperformed its benchmark by 5%; so the greater the Alpha, the greater the outperformance.
-
Beta
?Beta estimates a fund's volatility by comparison to that of its benchmark. A fund with a beta close to 1 means that the fund will move generally in line with the benchmark. Higher than 1 and the fund is more volatile than the benchmark and vice versa.
-
Sharpe
?This commonly-used measure calculates the level of return over and above the return of a notional risk-free investment, such as cash. The difference in returns is then divided by the fund's volatility. The resulting ratio is an indication of the amount of excess return generated per unit of risk.
-
Volatility
?Volatility (or standard deviation), when applied to an investment fund, expresses its risk. It shows how widely a range of returns varied from the fund's average return over a particular period. For example, if a fund had an average return of 5%, and its volatility was 15, this would mean that the range of its returns over the period had swung between +20% and -10%.
-
Tracking error
?This measures the standard deviation of a fund's excess returns over the returns of an index or benchmark portfolio. As such, it can be an indication of 'riskiness' in the manager's investment style. A Tracking Error below 2 suggests a passive approach. At 3 and above the the manager will be deploying a more active investment style.
-
Information ratio
?This is a useful risk-adjusted measure of actively managed fund performance. It is calculated by deducting the returns of the fund's benchmark from the fund's overall returns, then dividing the result by its tracking error. The higher the Information Ratio the better. It is generally considered that a figure of 0.5 reflects a good performance, 0.75 very good, and 1.00 outstanding.
-
R-Squared
?An indication of how closely correlated a fund is to an index or a benchmark. Values for R-Squared range between 0 and 1, with 0 indicating no correlation at all and 1 showing a perfect match. Values upwards of 0.7 suggest that the fund's behaviour is increasingly linked to its benchmark.
