Fund Aims

Objective: The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the M&G Dividend Fund - the underlying fund.

Underlying Fund Objective: The fund has three aims which are to provide an annual yield higher than that of the FTSE All-Share Index, to provide an income stream that increases every year and provide a higher total return (the combination of capital growth and income), net of the Ongoing Charge Figure, than that of the FTSE All-Share Index over any five-year period.

At least 70% of the fund is invested in equity securities and equity-related securities of companies across any sector and market capitalisation, that are incorporated, domiciled, listed or do most of their business in the United Kingdom. The fund may also invest in other transferable securities, including the shares of non-UK companies, cash and near cash directly or via collective investment schemes (including funds managed by M&G). Derivatives may be used for efficient portfolio management and hedging.

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 gross income reinvested. The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
