Investment objectives

The Fund aims to provide long term growth by investing in UK equities. The fund typically holds a concentrated portfolio of stocks and is actively managed by our investment team, who will select stocks, without reference to index weight or size, to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Due to the unconstrained nature of the fund investors must be willing to accept a relatively high degree of stock specific risk.

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.

Why has the price fallen 10% more than the FTSE,and has not recovered.

look at the sectors. It is a highly cyclical, aggressive growth mix of investments.

Industrials 41.30 1 (1) 41.30% Industrials
Financials 18.20 2 (2) 18.20% Financials
Basic Materials 13.40 3 (3)

The top three sectors will all do very well from a recovery and badly from a downturn.

Financials are an extreme example of this phenomenon.

The add fund menu does not include this fund, only the Inst fund not the retail.
