Which of the following fund groups has the strongest range of funds overall?
The performance of offshore funds on FE Trustnet is set to default in their own native currency, however if you want
to compare the performance of funds which are denominated in more than one currency you may wish to rebase
performance into UK sterling – so you can see what these funds have really produced in returns after the effects
of currency fluctuations and exchange rates have been taken into account.
The BlackRock European Diversified Equity Absolute Return Fund seeks to achieve a positive absolute return for investors regardless of market movements.The Fund
will seek to achieve this investment objective by taking long, synthetic long and synthetic short investment exposures.The Fund will seek to gain at least 70% ofi ts
investment exposure through equities and equity-related securities (including derivatives) of, or giving exposure to, companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in Europe. The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective by investing at least 70% ofi ts total assets in equities and equity-related securities and, when determined appropriate, cash and near-cash instruments. The Fund will be highly diversified across the universe of European equities, whilst seeking to minimise net exposure to underlying European equity
markets.In order to achieve the investment objective and policy the Fund will invest in a variety ofi nvestment strategies and instruments. The main strategy which the
Investment Adviser intends to pursue in order to assist it in achieving an absolute return is a market neutral strategy. This means it uses derivatives (synthetic short
or synthetic long positions)to reduce or mitigate the directional market risk (i.e. the risk associated with the market moving in one direction, up or down) relating to the instruments it has exposure to (via long positions or synthetic positions).As the Fund seeks to be highly diversified it will make extensive use of derivatives;using
them to gain investment exposure to instruments and at same time to mitigate the directional market risk of those instruments.It intends to take full advantage of the
ability to invest in derivatives providing synthetic long and/or synthetic short positions with the aim of maximising positive returns. The main type of derivatives which the Fund will use is contracts for differences.
Price total return performance figures are calculated on a bid price to bid price basis (mid to mid where applicable) with gross income (dividends) reinvested.
Performance figures are shown in fund’s native currency unless otherwise specified – performance figures can be rebased to Pence Sterling (GBX) using the rebasing option.
