Fund Objective: The fund’s objective is to achieve long-term (over 5 years) growth in value, investing in shares of companies on a global basis. The fund’s approach is to be a long-term investor in its chosen stocks and it will not adopt short-term trading strategies. The fund aims to invest in businesses: • that can sustain a high return on operating capital employed; • whose advantages are difficult to replicate; • which do not require significant borrowing to generate returns; • with a high degree of certainty of growth from reinvestment of their cash flows at high rates of return; • that are resilient to change, particularly technological innovation; • whose valuation is considered to be attractive; The fund will not invest in other funds, property or derivatives nor hedge any currency exposure. The fund will not borrow money, except in unusual circumstances. The fund is actively managed meaning that the fund manager uses their expertise to select investments to achieve the fund’s objective. The fund does not track and is not managed by reference to any particular benchmark. The fund does not have any specific geographical or sector focus. An investor, or prospective investor, may buy or sell their shares on demand each business day in the UK. Instructions to buy or sell received before noon will be implemented that day; instructions received after noon or on a non-business day will be implemented at noon on the next business day. For the Accumulation Shares, the dividends are reinvested in the fund. For the Income Shares, the dividends are paid out to you from the fund.
