Fund objective
The objective of the VT Munro Smart-Beta UK Fund (the “Subfund”) is to maximize the overall return by seeking to replicate the performance of the Freedom Smart-Beta UK Dividend Index.1 The Sub-fund will invest mainly in UK securities listed on the London Stock Exchange. The Sub-fund will be constructed on the basis of the underlying fundamental financial attributes of the companies listed on the London Stock Exchange rather on their market capitalisation. The weight of each company in the Sub-fund will be determined by the proportion that its forecast total dividend will be expected to make of the total income of all the companies held in the Sub-fund. The Sub-fund may also invest in other transferable securities, bonds, collective investment schemes, money market instruments, cash and deposits. It is the ACD’s intention that derivatives be used for hedging purposes using efficient portfolio management style techniques. The ACD does not intend to have an interest in any immovable property or tangible movable property. The Company will be managed in a manner that maintains eligibility for the stocks and shares component of a personal equity plan or individual savings account.
