Fund Profile

Category: SICAV

The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets. The Fund invests globally at least 70% of its total assets in equity securities (e.g. shares) and fixed income (FI) securities in normal market conditions. FI securities include bonds and money market instruments (i.e. debt securities with short term maturities). It may also hold deposits and cash. Subject to the above, the asset classes and the extent to which the Fund is invested in these may vary without limit depending on market conditions. The FI securities may be issued by governments, government agencies, companies and supranationals (e.g. the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) and may include securities with a relatively low credit rating or which are unrated. The Fund may also invest in companies that are small in size and are at a relatively early stage in their development. The Fund will generally aim to invest in securities of undervalued companies (i.e. their market price does not reflect their underlying worth). The IA may use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets) for investment purposes in order to achieve the investment objective of the Fund, and/or to reduce risk within the Fund’s portfolio, reduce investment costs and generate additional income. The Fund may, via FDIs, generate varying amounts of market leverage (i.e. where the Fund gains market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). The Fund is actively managed, and the IA has discretion to select the Fund's investments. In doing so, the IA will refer to a composite benchmark comprising the S&P 500 (36%); FTSE World (ex-US) (24%); 5 Yr US Treasury Note (24%) and FTSE Non-USD World Government Bond Index (16%) (the “Index”) when constructing the Fund’s portfolio, and also for risk management purposes to ensure that the active risk (i.e. degree of deviation from the Index) taken by the Fund remains appropriate given the Fund’s investment objective and policy. The IA is not bound by the components or weighting of the Index when selecting investments. The IA may also use its discretion to invest in securities not included in the Index in order to take advantage of specific investment opportunities. The Index should be used by investors to compare the performance of the Fund. Recommendation: This Fund may not be appropriate for short-term investment. Your shares will be non-distributing (i.e. dividend income will be included in their value). The Fund’s base currency is US Dollar. Shares for this class are bought and sold in Euro. The performance of your shares may be affected by this currency difference.

Risk Profile
Significant risks that are not adequately reflected in the profile:

Credit risk
The fund can invest in bonds and/or shares. The issuers of these bonds and/or shares may become insolvent, thus the value of the bonds and/or shares may be lost in full or in part.
Liquidity risk
The fund may invest in securities that are not easily tradable on a stock exchange or similar market.
Counterparty risk
If a fund counterparty becomes insolvent, it can no longer, or only partially, pay outstanding obligations.
Derivatives risk
The fund can enter into derivative transactions. The increased profit opportunities that arise, could also involve greater risks of loss.
Event risk
This fund may be negatively affected by unforeseeable events such as devaluations or political events.
Interest Rate Risk
The value of the fund is likely to fall when interest rates rise.

You will find all other risks associated with this fund in the prospectus.
