About our funds

What kind of investments do you offer?

We offer a range of open-ended investment funds, either sub-funds of Investment Companies with Variable Capital (ICVCs) or unit trusts. Which can be found here on our website:

Our funds may also be accessed through intermediaries such as platforms and fund supermarkets or through products offered by other product providers such as ISAs, SIPPs and pension plans.

What information do you provide on the funds you offer?

A Key Investor Information Document (KIID) is provided for each fund (with a separate version for each share class, for example income shares or accumulation shares).

What information can I find in a Key Investor Document (KIID)?

The KIID provides details of the investment objective, risks, on-going charges and past performance and practical information on obtaining shares and the operation of the fund. The format is prescribed by regulation and we are required to provide a copy before selling shares. Consequently, we require your clients (investors) to confirm they have seen the current KIID when applying for shares. PDF copies of our KIIDs can be found here on our website: or request free of charge from us.
