      Important Information
      Headline performance can mask the true characteristics of a fund. Without fully understanding how a fund is managed, you may inadvertanly 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 graphs shown are supplied by an external data provider and may contain data that appears to preced the introduction of the clean unit class for this fund. In such cases, historial 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.
