What are the risks?

  • The value of the fund and the income from it may go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invested
  • Past performance cannot be relied upon as a guide to future performance
  • The annual management charge is charged to capital, so the income of the fund may be higher but capital growth may be restricted or capital may be eroded
  • The fund will be invested in a concentrated portfolio of securities – the fund is not restricted by reference to any geographical region, sector or market capitalisation
  • The fund may invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, warrants, collective investment schemes and deposits
  • The fund may invest in overseas securities and be exposed to currencies other than pound sterling
