Fund objective
The Fund's investment objective is to provide income together with capital growth over the medium to long term. The Fund will invest primarily in collective investment schemes, exchange traded funds, and/or investment trusts in order to gain exposure to a wide spread of global equity, fixed interest and alternative assets including an element of currency exposure. The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, warrants, deposits, and derivative instruments. Use may be made of stock-lending, borrowing, cash holdings and hedging. The Fund may use derivatives for investment purposes as well as for Efficient Portfolio Management. The Fund will generally invest in a diverse set of equity, fixed income and alternative investment funds to maximize income, while maintaining prospects for capital appreciation. The fund will employ a global allocation approach to ensure it invests in the most attractive regional income opportunities. When investing in other funds, these underlying funds are selected principally on the basis of the ACD’s assessment of the consistency of their income and overall returns, the risks related to their investment strategies, the strength of their investment processes and the stability of their portfolio management teams.

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.
