Fund Provider M&G Limited
Fund Summary The Fund aims to deliver a total return (the combination of capital growth and income) of at least 5% per annum above the 3-month GBP LIBOR rate, before any charges are taken, over any five year period. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a positive return over five years, or any other period, and investors may not get back the original amount they invested. The Fund is a multi-asset fund that invests across a range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income securities, convertibles, cash and near cash. Exposure to these assets may be gained either directly or indirectly via collective investment schemes or derivatives. The Fund may also invest indirectly via collective investment schemes or derivatives in other asset classes such as property and gold. The currency exposure of the Fund will be actively managed, seeking to enhance returns, with a minimum of 30% of the fund exposed to sterling and a minimum of 60% in developed market currencies (including sterling). Derivatives may be used for investment purposes, efficient portfolio management and hedging. The fund manager has a flexible top-down approach to the allocation of capital between different types of assets in response to changes in economic conditions and asset values. This approach combines in-depth research to work out the value of assets over the medium to long-term, with analysis of market reactions to events to identify investment opportunities. In particular, the Manager seeks to respond when asset prices move away from a reasonable sense of ?fair? long-term value due to market reactions to events. The Fund seeks to manage risk by investing globally across multiple asset classes, sectors, currencies and countries. The Fund will typically invest 20-60% of its assets in equities and convertibles, 30-75% in fixed income securities or cash, and up to 20% in other assets.
