Fund Provider M&G Securities Ltd
Fund Summary The Fund aims to generate a growing level of income over any three-year period. The Fund also aims to provide capital growth of 2-4% over any three-year period. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective over this, or any other, period. The income distributions and the value of your investment may rise and fall and investors may not recoup the original amount they invested. The fund manager adopts a flexible approach to the allocation of capital between asset classes in response to changes in economic conditions and the valuation of assets. Central to this approach is the identification of episodes, which are periods of time during which, in the fund managers view, asset prices become over- or under-stated, relative to objective valuation measures, due to the emotional reaction of investors to events. These episodes can exist over both the short and medium term. The Fund invests in transferable securities, fixed income assets (including, but not limited to, corporate bonds and government and public securities), warrants, cash, and near cash. Exposure to these assets, and to property, may be gained via collective investment schemes and derivatives (including equity index futures, currency forwards, interest rate swaps, and other liquid derivatives). The manager may seek to minimise currency risk through the combination of diversification and hedging. Derivatives may also be used for efficient portfolio management purposes. More than 70% of the Fund will be in sterling or hedged back to sterling.
