The fund aims to:
- pay a fixed annual distribution of 2.5% based on the initial amount invested until maturity in December 2023; and
- grow capital over the six-year term.
Investment policy and strategy
Core investment: The fund invests in other funds managed by M&G to gain exposure to a mix of assets. The M&G funds can invest in a single asset class or in a range of asset classes, including company shares, bonds, convertibles, currencies and money market instruments, from anywhere in the world.
In the period leading up to maturity, the fund may hold high levels of cash and assets that can be turned quickly into cash.
Strategy in brief: The investment approach combines in-depth research to work out the value of assets over the short to medium term, with analysis of market reactions to events, to identify investment opportunities. The investment manager has a flexible top-down approach to the allocation of capital between different funds in response to changes in economic conditions and asset values.
The fund invests in different types of M&G funds, including those that provide income in order to generate an income, but can distribute from capital to meet its annual fixed distribution of 2.5%.
Duration: The fund is established for a period of six years after the launch date, during which time no further subscriptions are allowed. Investors who remain invested until maturity will not be subject to any redemption charge, but investors who redeem prior to maturity will be subject to a regressive redemption charge.
Benchmark: The fund is actively managed and it has no benchmark.
