Skandia M&G Global Basics

FE Crown Rating

Fund Objective

The Skandia M&G Global Basics Fund invests solely in the M&G Global Basics Fund, a sub-fund of the M&G Investment Funds (1), a UK authorised Open Ended Investment Company managed by M&G Securities Limited. The underlying fund aims to achieve long term capital growth. The underlying fund is a global equity fund which invests wholly or mainly in companies operating in basic industries ('primary' and 'secondary' industries) and also in companies that service these industries. The underlying fund may also invest in other global equities. 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. It should be noted that the performance of the Skandia fund will not match that of the underlying investment due to Skandia fund charges, appropriate taxation adjustments and the Skandia investment process.
