Objectives and Approach

The Fund aims to increase the value of your investment over a period of 5 years or more. The Fund will invest at least 70% in equities (and their related securities) of US companies (those domiciled, incorporated or having significant business in the US and those which are listed in the US). The Investment Manager will choose companies it believes are undervalued and whose growth potential is not fully recognised by the market. It is not restricted in terms of size or industry. The Fund is actively managed without reference to a benchmark. The Fund may also invest into other transferable securities, collective investment schemes, money market instruments, cash and deposits and is also able to use derivatives for efficient portfolio management. The Fund's performance can be compared to the S&P 500 NUK Index as the index constituents are representative of the type of companies the Fund invests in. NUK means Net Total Return (WHT 15%). NUK is a customised index variant, designed and maintained by S&P, which aligns more closely with this Fund's withholding tax treatment. Many funds sold in the UK are grouped into sectors by the Investment Association (the trade body that represents UK Investment Managers), to facilitate comparison between funds with broadly similar characteristics. This Fund is classified in the IA North America sector. Performance data on funds within this sector may be prepared and published by data providers and will be used when evaluating the performance of this Fund. The IA sector most closely reflects the combination of assets in the Fund.

        Important Information
        Headline performance can mask the true characteristics of a fund. Without fully understanding how a fund is managed, you may inadvertently become exposed to an undesirable level of risk to your capital. Some funds carry a dilution levy which reduces the number of units realised on any initial investment as an initial charge. If this fund carries such a levy it should be detailed in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID), which we must provide and you should read before investing.

        The charts and performance data shown are supplied by an external data provider and may contain data that appears to precede the introduction of the clean unit class for this fund. In such cases, historical data has been synthesised at the entire discretion of that external provider as realistically as possible using historical data recorded against the previously available commission-paying version of the fund, adjusting for fees in the process.
