OMW M&G Episode Growth

Fund Objective

The OMW M&G Episode Growth Fund invests solely in the M&G Episode Growth Fund, a Sub-Fund of M&G Investment Funds (4), a UK authorised Open-Ended Investment Company managed by M&G Securities Limited. The aim of the underlying fund is to maximise total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) by investing mainly in securities, fixed income assets, warrants, money market instruments, deposits, cash, near cash and property mainly via collective investment schemes, but, with the exception of property, may invest directly in these assets. Investments in emerging markets tend to be volatile and are usually considered to carry a greater degree of risk than investments in established markets. This relates to dealing, settlement and custody practices, the possibility of political or economic instability, and developing legal, fiscal and regulatory structures. The underlying fund may be denominated in or hold assets in a currency other than Sterling. The performance of the fund may therefore rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations. The underlying fund invests in bonds or money market instruments (including deposits with banks or other financial institutions). The yield and/or value of the fund will fluctuate as interest rates change. There is a possibility of default, reducing capital values. The underlying fund, or some of its underlying assets, may hold derivatives, or borrow to invest ('gearing'), and the nature of these investments can lead to a higher volatility in the price of the fund. In addition, the fund may have some exposure to credit risk if a provider of derivatives fails to honour their obligation. It should be noted that the performance of the OMW fund will not match that of the underlying investment due to OMW fund charges, appropriate taxation adjustments and the OMW investment process.
