Objectives and Approach

Objective: to achieve capital growth. In seeking to achieve its investment objective the fund will aim to deliver a return, net of fees, greater than that of the Numis Smaller Companies Index excluding Investment Companies over rolling 3 year periods. The Fund invests primarily in UK company shares and similar investments. The Fund will invest at least 80% in smaller companies, which are defined as those companies quoted on a regulated market and that are no larger than the largest company in the Numis Smaller Companies Index at the time of investment. The Fund may invest up to 10% in unlisted companies. The Fund may use derivatives (i.e. financial contracts whose value is linked to the expected price movements of an underlying investment) with the aim of reducing the overall costs and/or risks of the Fund. The Fund is actively managed.Portfolio construction is driven by research into a company's future prospects in the context of the economic environment to identify attractively priced investment opportunities. The Index is a broad representation of the Fund's investment universe and as such is a point of reference against which the performance of the Fund may be measured.Although a large proportion of the Fund’s investments may be components of the Index, the Fund has the ability to deviate significantly from the Index.

          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.
