Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth over the medium-to -long-term by investing globally in shares, bonds and alternative assets. It seeks to provide investors with a total return of Consumer Price Index (CPI) + 2% a year over a market cycle (typically three to five years) whilst also seeking to mitigate the risk of incurring a loss greater than 8% over any investment period. There is no guarantee that this objective will be met. There is a risk to an investor’s capital and they may not get back the amount originally invested. The fund will actively allocate globally, directly or indirectly, between: a) equities and equity related securities; b) bonds and other fixed or floating rate securities issued by governments, government agencies, supra-national or corporate issuers; c) alternative asset classes (such as commodities); and d) cash, deposits and money market funds. It may use derivatives for investment purposes (including for hedging) as well as for efficient portfolio management. The fund’s risk management process may result in greater allocations to cash, deposits and/or money market funds at times of market stress.

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.
