Skandia Distribution (SDB)

FE Crown Rating

Fund Objective

The Skandia Distribution Fund aims to outperform the median fund in the Distribution Funds Sector over the medium to long term. It invests in a well-diversified portfolio with a long term asset allocation of global equities, fixed interest securities, property and cash, with a bias towards the UK. The Fund makes quarterly distributions of income on 17 February, May, August and November each year. Skandia has appointed specialist managers to manage assets in each market and continuously monitors these appointments. Investment may be made through collective investment schemes or through directly invested portfolios. 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 non-investment grade high-yielding bonds. The high yield reflects a higher risk of capital loss through default. 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.
