Fund objective
The objective of the scheme is to provide a total return* of capital and income in excess of that achieved by the FTSE Small Cap Index (excluding investment companies) over the medium to long term. The Scheme will be actively managed on a total return basis investing primarily in UK companies having a market capitalisation of £250m or less at the time of purchase. A considerable proportion of the portfolio will be invested in smaller companies with a market capitalisation of less than £150m at the time of purchase. At times it may be appropriate for the Scheme not to be fully invested but to hold cash and near cash. The Scheme may also invest in other transferable securities, including but not limited to, warrants and government and public securities and units in collective investment schemes. The Scheme is permitted to invest in derivatives and forward transactions for the purposes of hedging only. *Investors should be aware that there is no guarantee that this objective will be achieved over this (or any) time period and that your capital is in fact at risk.
