Fund Aims

The Fund aims to achieve a total return (the combination of income and capital growth) of at least 2.5% per annum above the Sterling Overnight Index Average (SONIA), before any charges are taken, in any market conditions and over any three year period. The Fund aims to achieve this while seeking to minimise the degree to which the value of the Fund fluctuates over time (volatility), while also seeking to limit monthly losses. Managing the Fund in this way reduces its ability to achieve returns significantly above SONIA plus 2.5%. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a positive return over three years, or any other period, and investors may not get back the original amount they invested.
