The Fund aims to provide real growth of income above the rate of inflation, and capital growth as a consequence of the rising income. The fund manager focuses on
shares which trade at a relatively low valuation compared to the company’s assets or profit growth outlook. These shares tend to carry a high yield. The fund manager invests in shares where he believes the company will be able to continue to pay out a high level of income through growing profits. A typical portfolio holding will therefore have a track record of producing strong returns on capital employed.
