This is a blend approach – we invest on the basis of both valuations and business quality.
Valuations: we use fundamentals such as dividends and earnings to identify companies which we believe are undervalued by their current market price.
Business quality: we look for quality companies by assessing measures of profitability, stability and financial strength.
The advantage of combining Value and Quality opportunities in a single portfolio is that while both strategies tend to outperform through time they tend to deliver their returns at different stages of the economic cycle, offering investors the potential for outperformance across a broad range of market environments.
The fund aims to provide capital growth and income by investing in equities of companies worldwide.
The fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in a diversified portfolio of equities of companies worldwide.Within those restrictions, the fund focuses on companies that have certain "Value" and/or "Quality" characteristics. Value means looking at indicators such as cash flows, dividends and earnings to identify securities which the manager believes have been undervalued by the market. Quality means looking at indicators such as a company's profitability, stability and financial strength.The fund is managed with reference to material environmental, social and governance factors. This means issues such as climate change, environmental performance, labour standards or board composition that could impact a company's value may be considered in the assessment of companies.The fund may use derivatives with the aim of achieving investment gains, reducing risk or managing the fund more efficiently. The fund may also hold cash.

The performance is calculated for the portfolio. The individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, the actual investment date, the date of reinvestment and dividend withholding tax. All fund performance data are on a NAV to NAV basis, net income reinvested and net of ongoing charges and transaction costs. Data is not available for the time periods with no % growth stated. In case a share class is created after the fund's launch date, a simulated past performance is used, based upon the performance of an existing share class within the fund, taking into account the difference in the ongoing charges and the portfolio transaction costs, and including the impact of any performance fees if applicable.
Annualised return is the weighted average compound growth rate over the period measured.
