Overall portfolio values, as well as portfolio constituents, can be made the subject of alerts.
You have one watchlist, and this shows you the number of items currently stored in the watchlist. Items stored here do not have holdings records, so this list simply monitors the price of items held, which can also be subject to alerts

Do you think UK inflation will increase in the next 12 months?
The investment objective of the Fund aims to deliver long term capital growth from a broadly balanced approach to investing, whilst ensuring that the overall volatility of the portfolio remains within its set volatility band. The Fund will seek to achieve its balanced objective through investment predominantly in a single derivative contract (“Swap”). The Fund will therefore receive a return linked to the performance of the basket of assets which underlie the Swap. The basket will contain assets that enable the return to be linked to the performance of equities, bonds and cash. The Fund may also invest in directly held transferable securities, derivatives, cash deposits, warrants and money market instruments. Investment may be made globally but foreign currency exposure through non UK investments may be hedged back into Sterling. It is intended that derivatives will also be used for efficient portfolio management. In particularly volatile markets, the Fund may temporarily hold more than 10% in cash provided it is in accordance with the investment objective of the Fund. As the Fund has the discretion to borrow up to 10% of the value of the property of the Fund, this facility may be used to help manage liquidity.
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.
All prices in Pence Sterling (GBX) unless otherwise specified. Price total return performance figures are calculated on a bid price to bid price basis (mid to mid for OEICs) with net income (dividends) reinvested. Performance figures are shown in Sterling unless otherwise specified.
