Fund objective
The fund aims to seek capital growth relative to a given level of risk by investing in a diversified range of global securities. The level of risk in this portfolio is rated as 2 where 1 is the lowest level of risk and 5 is the highest. The Fund will invest in a broad range of global securities and equivalent equity related securities with the aim of delivering capital growth consistent with the given level of risk as set out in the objective. Such securities may include companies or other eligible vehicles (including, without limitation, Exchange Traded Commodities) that in turn invest directly or indirectly into property and commodities. The Fund may also invest in eligible collective investment schemes. There are no constraints on the asset, regional, sectoral or geographic allocation policy adopted by the Fund. The ACD may also invest at its discretion in other transferable securities, money market instruments, deposits and cash and near cash. On giving 60 days' notice to Shareholders, the Fund may, in addition to its other investment powers, use exchange traded and over the counter derivatives and forward currency contracts for investment purposes. Using these investment powers for investment purposes means, in particular, maintaining positions in these investments for the long-term rather than just for tactical short-term purposes. However, where derivatives are used for the purposes of meeting the investment objective of the Fund it is not intended that the use of derivatives would raise the overall risk profile of the Fund.
