The investment policy of the Fund is to gain exposure through a flexible asset allocation to a broad diversified range of asset classes including, equities, fixed interest securities, currencies, cash, near cash and deposits, warrants and approved money market instruments. Exposure to these asset classes is expected to be mainly achieved through investment in a combination of transferable securities, collective investment schemes, deposits and derivatives. The Fund may gain exposure to the property or commodities markets through investment in eligible asset classes, such as exchange listed securities and/or collective investment schemes.
The Fund will not have any restrictions on the proportion of the Fund allocated to any of these asset classes. The Fund may invest in any geographic or economic sectors of the world.
Derivatives may be used for investment purposes as well as for efficient portfolio management. It is not intended that the use of derivatives in this way will raise the risk profile of the Fund.
