Fund objective
Aims to provide long-term capital growth. At least 70% invested in shares and related instruments that provide exposure to companies that have their head office in, are listed in, or have a main part of their activity in the US. Has the freedom to invest outside the fund's principal geographies, market sectors, industries or asset classes. Can use derivatives with the aim of risk or cost reduction or to generate additional capital or income in line with the fund's risk profile. May also make extensive use of derivatives including more complex instruments or strategies to achieve the investment objective and these may result in leverage. In such situations performance may rise or fall more than it would have done otherwise, reflecting such additional exposure. The fund has discretion in its choices of investments within its objectives and policies. Currency hedging is used to substantially reduce the risk of losses from unfavourable exchange rate movements on holdings in currencies that differ from the dealing currency. Hedging also has the effect of limiting the potential for currency gains to be made. Income is accumulated in the share price. Shares can usually be bought and sold each business day of the fund. This fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to sell their shares in the fund within 5 years. Investment in the fund should be regarded as a long-term investment.
