Fund Summary The Fund aims to provide a return on your investment over the medium to long term with an average range and frequency of price movements (volatility). The Fund pursues its aim primarily by investing in other funds (underlying funds). Underlying funds are selected principally on the basis of our assessment of their consistency of investment returns, the risks related to the investment strategy, the strength of the investment process and the stability of the fund's management team. The underlying funds may invest in a range of investments. The Fund may also invest directly in a range of financial instruments including shares, tradable debt (bonds) issued by companies, governments and other institutions, some of which can easily be converted into cash (money market instruments), freely transferrable rights to buy other investments at a future date (warrants), financial contracts that derive their values from those of other investment instruments or indices (derivatives) and deposits. The Fund may use derivatives with a view to generating investment returns; to reduce risk or costs; or to generate additional capital or income in a manner consistent with the Fund's risk profile. The Fund may use investment techniques including borrowing cash and making investments intended to offset potential losses that may be incurred by other investments (hedging). Recommendation: this Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 5 years. If you hold income shares, we will pay you any income earned from the Fund's investments on an annual basis. If you hold accumulation shares, we will automatically include income earned in the value of your shares. You may sell your investment on a daily basis. The base currency of the Fund is GBP.
