Aim

The fund aims to produce investment returns within a range of between 1% and 5% of the FTSE All Share Index.


External Matrix Fund Description

The fund invests in unit linked collective investment funds with an active management style. Depending on underlying market conditions the fund's annualised performance will track within a range of between 1% and 5% of the FTSE All Share Index measured on a rolling 3 year basis.


Underlying Fund Description

The fund aims to achieve a degree of outperformance within a lower risk framework by investing between three managers. Around 50% of the investments are allocated to a passive manager and the other 50% are divided equally between the other managers. A passive manager aims to track performance of a particular index so the returns tend to be more predictable.

The managers include GMO and Baillie Gifford. The passive manager is BlackRock Aquila.


This approach allows investors to take advantage of the benefits of various investment styles and to access global investment markets, while reducing the risk of being unduly exposed to one particular style.
