How it works

The fund aims to invest approximately 80% of its net assets in shares (either directly or through investment in other investment funds) and 20% of its net assets in debt. The fund invests in high quality debt, such as bonds, money market instruments and commercial paper and certificates of deposits issued by governments, other public bodies and companies in developed countries. 

The fund invests to gain exposure to developed and emerging markets using a core strategy meaning that the fund has a general exposure to the stock-market with a greater allocation towards shares of smaller sized companies and value companies. Value companies are those where, at the time of purchase, the fund manager thinks the price is low compared to the accounting value of the company. The fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in emerging markets countries. The fund may use financial derivative instruments for the purposes of hedging and efficient portfolio management. As this fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone, a currency risk arises for a euro investor.
