Fund Aims

Objective: The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the Artemis UK Smaller Companies Fund - the underlying fund.

Underlying Fund Objective: The fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth where between 80-100% of the fund will hold investment in smaller companies listed, quoted and/or traded and which are headquartered or have a significant part of their activities in the UK which are quoted on a regulated market outside the UK. Up to 20% may be invested in bonds, cash and near cash, other transferable securities, other funds (up to 10%) and derivatives. The fund may use derivatives for efficient portfolio management and to reduce risk.

Important Information

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

Source of portfolio data: Broadridge. Source of performance data: FE fundinfo. We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn’t a guide to future performance. The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of product charges, or any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with net income reinvested. The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.

This factsheet is for information purposes only. If there is information or terminology included that you would like to discuss, then please contact an adviser. Investors should refer to their policy documentation and supporting brochures for fund availability, investment strategy, any product information and charges.
