This fund is suitable for Investors that are looking for returns linked to the equity market but where capital preservation is important, all within a regulated CIS structure. The fund will have a similar risk profile to low to medium equity funds but hopefully have better risk adjusted returns based on the risk management and portfolio construction skills of the manager.
