Focused on generating capital growth and an attractive income.
The Company seeks to achieve this objective by investing in companies which have good long-term prospects with attractive returns on invested capital, but whose share prices may not fully reflect this. This could be because of adverse sentiment, possibly from short-term difficulties, or simply because they are unfashionable. Many of the stocks purchased have a higher than average dividend yield.
The value of your investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the original amount invested. Gearing is used for investment purposes to obtain, increase or reduce exposure to an asset, index or investment. The use of gearing can enhance returns to investors in a rising market, but if the market falls the losses may be greater

Sustainability and ESG
Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) issues are the three central factors in measuring sustainability and can present both opportunities and threats to the long-term investment performance the Company aims to deliver to Shareholders. The Board is therefore committed to taking a responsible approach to ESG matters. There are two strands to this approach. The Company’s own responsibilities on matters such as governance and the impact it has through the investments that are made on its behalf by its Manager.
