We have a separate strategy that looks to limit losses to under 10% over any given period (though this isn’t a guarantee).
We help you stay in control of client conversations with regular updates, webinars, and a dedicated sales team.
We cap the Ongoing Charge Figure (OCF) at 0.29%.
Different markets, different asset classes; by investing in assets around the world – and changing the mixture as markets change – this portfolio is designed to ride economic waves. Here’s a deeper look.
When the market gets more volatile, a portion of the portfolio is moved into cash – bringing down market exposure.
“We believe this is the perfect portfolio for investors with a more conservative approach to risk.”

The Fund aims to provide capital growth and income in excess of the ICE BofA Sterling 3-Month Government Bill Index plus 2% per annum (after fees have been deducted) over a three to five year period, whilst also seeking to mitigate the risk of incurring a loss greater than 10% over any investment period, by investing in a diversified range of assets and markets worldwide. The Fund will seek to achieve a target average volatility (a measure of how much the Fund's returns may vary over a year) over a rolling five year period of 4% per annum. This cannot be guaranteed and your capital is at risk.
Credit risk: A decline in the financial health of an issuer could cause the value of its bonds to fall or become worthless. Currency risk: The fund may lose value as a result of movements in foreign exchange rates. Derivatives risk: A derivative may not perform as expected, may create losses greater than the cost of the derivative and may result in losses to the fund. The fund may also materially invest in derivatives including using short selling and leverage techniques with the aim of making a return. When the value of an asset changes, the value of a derivative based on that asset may change to a much greater extent. This may result in greater losses than investing in the underlying asset. High yield bond risk: High yield bonds (normally lower rated or unrated) generally carry greater market, credit and liquidity risk. IBOR risk: The transition of the financial markets away from the use of interbank offered rates (IBORs) to alternative reference rates may impact the valuation of certain holdings and disrupt liquidity in certain instruments. This may impact the investment performance of the fund. Interest rate risk: The fund may lose value as a direct result of interest rate changes. Liquidity risk: In difficult market conditions, the fund may not be able to sell a security for full value or at all. This could affect performance and could cause the fund to defer or suspend redemptions of its shares. Market risk: The value of investments can go up and down and an investor may not get back the amount initially invested. Operational risk: Operational processes, including those related to the safekeeping of assets, may fail. This may result in losses to the fund. Performance risk: Investment objectives express an intended result but there is no guarantee that such a result will be achieved. Depending on market conditions and the macro economic environment, investment objectives may become more difficult to achieve.
Sustainability is our guiding principle, both for ourselves and the companies we invest in. If you’re not paying attention to ESG, you’re missing the chance to future-proof your investment strategies.
