Investment Objective

The Fund’s objective is to generate a high and rising level of income over time through investment in a diversified range of assets. Subject to this, the Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term. The fund manager adopts a flexible approach to the allocation of capital between asset classes in response to changes in economic conditions and the valuation of assets. Central to this approach is the identification of episodes, which are periods of time during which, in the fund manager’s view, asset prices become over- or under-stated, relative to objective valuation measures, due to the emotional reaction of investors to events. These episodes can exist over both the short and medium term.
