Fund Objective and Investment Policy
The Courtiers Total Return Cautious Risk Fund seeks to achieve a total return comprised of income and capital growth, over 5 years.
The Fund aims to achieve its objective through an actively managed portfolio of different assets held within the Fund. The above time horizon is not a recommendation to sell the investment at the end of that minimum period. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective over any particular period or at all.
The Fund will gain exposure to different asset classes worldwide, such as company shares, commodities, bonds, cash instruments and real estate such as property. At the ACD’s discretion, the Fund may be weighted to any one or more of these asset classes, provided such weighting is consistent with the Fund’s objectives.
Rather than buying directly into the above asset classes, the ACD intends to obtain exposure to them by investing in other security types such as funds managed by other specialist managers including those managed by the ACD, investments issued by banks or governments that are a short term loan to the issuer by the buyer, deposits and derivatives, the value of which is derived from one or another of the underlying investments noted above such as shares, commodities or the performance of a particular stock exchange. The risk of the underlying assets is considered, along with the prevailing market conditions.
The ACD will use their expertise to select investments and positions that deliver a high level of returns in a way that is efficient, low cost and in line with the Fund’s overall risk strategy.
To help investors to compare funds with broadly similar characteristics, the Investment Association (the trade body that represents the UK investment management industry) has grouped many funds sold in the UK into sectors.
Courtiers Total Return Cautious Risk Fund is classified in the Investment Association Mixed Investment 20-60% shares sector.
The above sector can be used by investors as a performance comparator.
Below average risk investors keep money for capital expenditure, and emergencies, in cash deposits and National Savings. They will, however, take risks with their medium to longer-term assets (over 5 years) in an attempt to generate higher returns than inflation. Longer-term assets will be broadly diversified over a range of assets where the values may fluctuate, but this will be limited. Investors must recognise that the risk of placing their money in cash deposits is that inflation can erode the value of capital.
Investor traits: Wary, takes some long term risks.
