Investment 
policy

The Fund invests in shares of companies, primarily listed in the UK, which the Manager believes are leading companies within their sector and will provide above-average returns. The Fund invests generally in large companies. The Manager selects shares based upon analysis of a company’s prospects for future growth in dividend payments, financial status, quality of its management, expected profitability and prospects for growth. 

The Manager expects that the Fund’s portfolio will typically consist of shares of between 30-50 different companies, although the actual number of holdings could be greater or less than this range. The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities and units in  collective investment schemes. The Fund may use derivatives for Efficient Portfolio Management. Use may be made of borrowing, cash holdings, hedging and other investment techniques permitted in the applicable Financial Conduct Authority rules.

The Fund has at least 70% of its investments in shares of companies domiciled, incorporated or having significant business in the UK, which the Manager believes are leading companies within their sector and will provide above-average returns. The Fund has at least 51% of its investments in companies which are in the FTSE 100 index.

The FTSE 350 Total Return index is designed to measure the performance of the shares of the 350 largest UK listed companies. This index best represents the types of companies in which the Fund predominantly invests.
