Fund objective
The fund aims to provide long term capital growth by investing in equities of companies listed in the FTSE 250 Index. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in equities of UK companies listed in the FTSE 250 Ex-Investment Companies Index. The manager believes that these investments can potentially offer faster rates of profit and dividend growth and higher long-term returns than their larger counterparts. The fund may also invest in former components of, or expected entrants into, that index if the manager believes it may be advantageous to do so. The fund may also invest in collective investment schemes and warrants, and hold cash. The fund may use derivatives with the aim of reducing risk or managing the fund more efficiently.
