Investment objectives

The fund aims to provide capital growth. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in shares of UK companies that are in the bottom 10% of the UK stock market at the time the fund purchases them. The fund has no bias to any particular industry. The small cap universe is an extensive, diverse and constantly changing area of the UK market. Smaller companies offer investors exposure to some niche growth areas that, often, cannot be accessed through large companies. They also tend to grow more rapidly than larger firms and can go on to become household names. Our investment approach centres on stock selection, which means we focus on each company's ability to create value for shareholders, rather than try to predict what will happen in the wider economic environment. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to reduce risk or manage the fund more effectively.

The Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) shows the drag on performance caused by operational expenses associated with a fund.

Expenses which are represented by this figure include payments to the manager, the trustee the custodian and their representatives. The figure also includes registration, regulatory, audit and legal fees, and the costs of distribution.

Performance fees, transaction costs, interest on borrowing, costs associated with derivatives, entry and exit fees and soft commissions are not included in the OCF calculation, and should be factored in separately by the investor.

The OCF is calculated by taking the sum of these expenses incurred in the last 12 months and dividing this by the average net assets of that class for the last 12 months.

Total Expense Ratio (TER) is a formula designed to show the ongoing costs to the investor associated with a fund, including some charges which are not factored into the annual management fee. In addition the fund’s annual fee, charges such as trading fees, audit and legal fees, and operational expenses are included in the TER, which is worked out by dividing the total cost of the fund by its total assets to arrive at a percentage.

Unlike the Ongoing Charges Figure, the TER takes into account performance fees. It does not include transaction costs paid to the custodian.

Sorry, another mobile phone typo. That last one should of course read 'X 1,000,000,.

Ilmarinen Jun 09th, 2012 at 08:05 AM

I typedca reply but coildn't copy the awkward security code at the end so will now try again. I wss wondering about this too so wrote an email to Cazenove whose Client Account or was it Client Services manager Stephen Gough replied very quickly by showing me where the information is on the Cazenove website. The answer is differences in minimum entry amounts: A class shares require 25,000, B 1,000 and B 1,000,000.

I think this page should say UT or OEIC at the top, right after the name of the fund and also explain somewhere what A, B and X shares are. I suppose A means retail(why nor R?) ad B means institutional(why not I?), but what on Earth is X? This really is the only industry that only thinks of themselves and does not give two hoots for their milch cows.
