Fund objective
The Fund aims to provide long term capital growth on your investment through the use of an extension strategy. Use of an extension strategy means that in addition to having up to 100% of the Fund’s assets exposed to shares via long positions and/or synthetic long positions, the intention is to enter into synthetic short positions, to achieve additional investment exposure. The Portfolio Manager (PM) will use the proceeds from these to buy additional synthetic long positions. Through a long position the Fund aims to profit by choosing assets that will rise in value. A short position is the sale of an asset which the Fund does not physically own with the aim of buying it later at a lower price to secure a profit. The PM will use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) to take synthetic long and synthetic short positions.
