Asset Allocation

Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide a return on your investment (generated through an increase in the value of the assets held by the Fund) (gross of fees) over the long term (5 or more consecutive years beginning at the point of investment) through investment in shares of companies related to gold mining, commodities and precious-metals. It tends to be volatile and is particularly suitable for diversification in a larger portfolio.
