Important Information

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 ongoing charges, but take no account of product charges. Ongoing charges 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 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.
