ObjectiveThe value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up and you or your client may not get back the amount originally invested.
The Multi Asset Growth Fund aims to achieve (after deduction of costs): an annualised return over five years that is 3.5% more than UK Base Rate, a positive return over three-year periods and annualised volatility of returns below 10%. There is no guarantee that a positive return will be achieved over three year periods, or any time period, and capital may be at risk. The manager believes this is an appropriate benchmark given the investment policy of the Fund and the approach taken by the manager when investing.
