Investment objectives

The Fund aims to maximise capital and income returns through investment in a range of assets, although up to 100% could be invested in equities.The Fund may invest directly in individual securities managed by a variety of external mandates and through collective investment schemes. Initially, the Fund is likely to be invested totally in collective investment schemes and as the Fund develops the ACD will use a strategy of the combination of both external investment mandates and collective investment schemes to achieve the Fund’s objective.The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, warrants, derivatives and deposits directly and/or indirectly through collective investment schemes. Use may be made of stock-lending, borrowing, cash holdings, hedging and other investment techniques permitted in the COLL Sourcebook.Any investment using derivatives adheres to the guidance laid down regarding efficient portfolio management in order to reduce risk; to reduce cost; or togenerate additional capital or income in a manner consistent with the Fund's risk profile.

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.
