This fund aims to achieve long-term inflation-beating growth. The fund has a growth asset bias and will invest more heavily in shares. The portfolio manager actively allocates to other asset classes to take advantage of changing market conditions and to manage the fund's volatility. This fund is suitable for investors wanting moderate to high long-term growth, with less volatility in the short term than pure equity. It is suitable as a standalone retirement investment.
The fund is exposed to all sectors of the market (shares, bonds & property) and may invest up to 25% of its portfolio offshore in line with Treasury guidelines. Derivatives may be used for risk management purposes.
The fund complies with retirement fund legislation. It is therefore suitable as a stand-alone fund in retirement products where Regulation 28 compliance is specifically required.
