Fund objective
The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth on your investment. The Fund invests primarily in the shares of companies incorporated or listed in the United Kingdom and will normally have an emphasis on small and medium sized companies which are those companies whose market capitalisation is lower than that of the companies in the FTSE 100 Index. The market capitalisation of a company is the share price of the company multiplied by the number of shares issued. The Fund has the flexibility to invest outside of the asset class set out above.
