Performance contributions are calculated on a total return basis, including the impact of intra-period trading, gross of fees in sterling using closing prices. Contribution totals may therefore not match fund performance data from other data sources which may be based on midday prices, net of fees. Values do not always sum due to rounding. Stock returns can only be calculated where the position has been held by the fund for the full period. Individual securities which relate to the same holding have been aggregated together where appropriate.

Past performance is not a guide to future returns. This data is provided for information purposes only and should not be reproduced, published or disseminated in any manner. Care is taken in ensuring this is accurate as at the stated date. However, this is not guaranteed, and the portfolio may change at any time. This does not constitute investment advice or any recommendation with regard to the listed stocks.

What are the risks?

  • Young businesses have a different risk profile to mature blue-chip companies – risks are much more stock-specific, which implies a lower correlation with equity markets and the wider economy
  • Long-term outcomes are more binary – extremely attractive rewards for success but some businesses will inevitably fail to fulfil their potential and this may expose investors to the risk of capital losses
  • As it can take years for young businesses to fulfil their potential, this investment requires patience
  • The value of the trust as well as any income it pays will fluctuate which may partly be the result of exchange rate changes
  • The price of shares in the trust is determined by market supply and demand, and this may be different to the net asset value of the trust
  • The trust may invest in overseas securities and be exposed to currencies other than pound sterling
  • The trust may invest in unquoted securities, which may be less liquid and more difficult to realise than publicly traded securities
