Fund objective
To give long-term capital growth, normally by investing primarily in shares of companies included in the Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 Index (FTSE 100 Index). The fund may move away from the policy of being primarily invested in shares when market conditions indicate that a better return is expected to be achieved by being invested in cash, near cash and/or deposits and with or without options. To give a level of protection against major stockmarket falls through the use of a Safety Price. By ‘Safety Price’ we mean the lowest possible selling price which is guaranteed not to fall for a period of time, the ‘Safety Period’, normally 12 months. The Safety Price is set at 95% of the share price at the start of each Safety Period. Important Notes: • If the share price of class A shares rises 10% above the share price at the start of the Safety Period, we will raise the Safety Price and start a new Safety Period. • You can check the up-to-date Safety Price and end date for the Safety Period on our website at www.scottishwidows.co.uk.
