Fund objective
The Threadneedle UK Select Trust Limited’s (the “Company”) investment objective is to provide shareholders with a total return in excess of the total return on the FTSE All-Share Index, together with a progressive dividend policy. The Company’s Investment Policy is to invest in any security listed or quoted on any UK stock exchange provided that no less than 80 per cent of its gross assets at the time an investment is made are invested in constituents of the FTSE All-Share index. There are no minimum or maximum limits on the number of investments in the portfolio but it is expected that the portfolio will generally comprise shares and securities in 50 to 90 companies. The Company intends to be fully invested in normal market conditions but may hold up to 20 per cent of net asset value in cash on deposit (or in short-term money market instruments) during periods in which the Investment Manager believes markets are overvalued or expects them to fall. Gearing is used selectively in order to leverage the Company’s portfolio to enhance returns where the Investment Manager considers it appropriate to do so. The Board has set a gearing limit for the Company of a maximum of 20 per cent of net assets at the time of draw down. However, in normal market conditions, borrowings are not expected to exceed 10 per cent.Subject to the Board giving its prior approval, the Investment Manager is permitted to invest in options and other derivatives for the purposes of efficient portfolio management only.
