Investment objective

The Company aims to give shareholders a higher than average return with growth of both capital and income over the medium to long term. The Company’s policy is to invest in a broad spread of predominantly UK companies of differing sizes with normally not more than half by value coming from the largest 100 UK companies and the balance from small and medium sized companies.

Overview

  • Up to 50% invested in FTSE 100 companies for stability and income, with the balance in small and medium UK companies for their growth potential.
  • Aggressively geared to enhance potential returns.
  • Aims to provide higher-than-average return for investors, with growth of both capital and income over the medium-to-long term

The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
