Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth and income. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in shares of companies worldwide with no bias to any particular industry or size company.Global Core takes the benchmark as its starting point with the fund manager investing in lots of small positions. This means that the fund's returns are delivered with a level of risk that is closely tied to that of the benchmark.Our views on the factors that contribute to share price returns are fed into a model which allows us to analyse over 15,000 companies on a daily basis. We are then able to build a highly diversified portfolio of over 500 companies minimising the risk that performance of a single stock could significantly affect the performance of the overall fund.The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to achieve the investment objective and to reduce risk or manage the fund more efficiently.
