Investment objectives

The fund’s investment objective is to provide income with potential for capital growth primarily through investment in equity and equity related securities of UK companies. The fund will also use derivative instruments to generate additional income. The manager may selectively sell short dated call options over securities or portfolios of securities held by the fund or indices, in order to generate additional income by setting target 'strike' prices at which those securities may be sold in the future. The manager is also permitted to sell put options on securities or portfolios of securities which are not held by the fund, or indices, at target prices that are pre-set below the current market level. The manager may also, for the purpose of efficient management, use derivative instruments which replicate the performance of a basket of short dated call options or a combination of equity securities and short dated call options. Investment will be in directly held transferable securities. The fund may also invest in collective investment schemes, derivatives, cash, deposits, warrants and money market instruments.

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.

The stated objective of the Fund is to 'provide income with potential for capital growth' and I agree that to combine the two and set out the result as a single percentage is not helpful. As we know, income is fact, valuation surplus is simply notional without disposing of the investment and why would you want to do that if the asset was suitable in other respects?

David orriss Jan 28th, 2013 at 05:06 PM

Performance much improved this year. I'm glad they listened to me :-). My services are cheaply available !

David orriss Jan 09th, 2012 at 03:38 AM

I hold VOD, GSK and RDSA in my pension pot - 13% up in 14 months to end of 2011. How can these professionals with sophisticated software justify the lack of performance and high fees. Not good enough.

Roxammon Apr 12th, 2010 at 11:16 PM

I cannot see where the Yield is shown? Can anyone help?

Gary Crosby Feb 16th, 2011 at 09:18 PM

Pull up the Schroders UT prices & performance table; this includes a yield column.

Philip Perry Apr 06th, 2010 at 08:20 AM

It would be useful to give the graph of the share/unit price both excluding and including the re-invested income to give a better indication of the underlying capital values. Although the overall return is important it is equally important to know exactly wher the returns are coming from.

Theo Mar 28th, 2011 at 08:20 PM

The approach of this fund seems interesting, put no IFA is singing its praises And I note last year, its total return was only 2.8%, ie. less than than its div. yield. You have to try harder Mr Schroder.
