Asset Allocation

Fund Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to grow the value of your investment (known as “capital growth”) in excess of the Numis Smaller Companies + AIM Excluding Investment Companies Index Net Total Return (the “Benchmark”) over a rolling 5 year period, after the deduction of all fees. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its value in shares of the smallest 10% of companies in the UK stock market in terms of market capitalisation (total number of shares outstanding multiplied by the current price). Investment can be direct, or indirect, in shares (including common and preference shares), rights for shares, warrants, depositary receipts (securities issued by banks that represent company shares), investment trusts (including REITS) and collective investment schemes.
