Fund objective
To achieve long-term growth of investors' capital and income through an appropriate portfolio of equities and predominantly investment grade fixed interest securities, acquired on the basis of value and not popularity or fashion and with patience in mind. Though there will be a general emphasis on a fair immediate yield, the Fund may occasionally buy securities which do not pay dividends. The Investment Advisers to the Manager will undertake their own security analysis (rather than relying on external research sources or commentary) and form their own views as to the merits of specific securities. The pattern of operations will concentrate upon investment grade sterling bonds of companies, corporations, public bodies, institutions and sovereign issuers and the equities of corporations considered by the investment advisers to represent sound long-term value. At times it may be appropriate for the Scheme not to be fully invested but to hold cash and near cash. The Scheme will have powers to borrow as specified in CIS and the Manager may, where it deems appropriate, undertake hedging transactions for the purpose of efficient portfolio management; these transactions will not be speculative.

?A fund’s ongoing charges figure (OCF) is similar to the old-style total expense ratio.

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.
2.87
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.
0.82
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.
0.74
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%.
7.93
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.
5.65
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.
0.24
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.
