Balanced Fund

The objective of the Balanced Fund is to generate capital growth over the medium to long term.

The fund is a balanced investment solution seeking exposure to our global themes through equity and fixed-income funds. The fund has a flexible mandate which allows up to 60% of the portfolio to be exposed to equities and at least 30% of the portfolio to be exposed to fixed income and/or cash investments. We are active managers and not constrained by stock market indices or benchmarks.
