Of the remaining one third of assets, the Fund may invest up to 5% in units of collective investment schemes and the remainder in fixed interest securities, convertible bonds, money market instruments, warrants, cash, near cash and deposits. The collective investment schemes in which the Fund will invest may include schemes in the UK which are managed or operated by the ACD or an associate of the ACD. The Fund may use derivatives and forward currency transactions for the purposes of efficient portfolio management.
