The Equities Portfolio is invested predominantly in UK equities and equity-related securities of large and mid-sized companies. In managing the Equities Portfolio, the Manager will approach portfolio construction with the aim of selecting stocks which are expected to be core long-term holdings. This entails having relatively low turnover in the Equities Portfolio. The Manager tends to favour companies which have the ability to grow earnings and dividends in real terms over the longer term, have strong balance sheets, generate excess cash flow beyond the reinvestment requirements of the business and have a proven management team with a commitment to dividend growth. The Manager’s objective for the Equities Portfolio will be to achieve a total return in excess of that of the FTSE All-Share Capped 5% Index.
The Higher Yield Portfolio is invested predominantly in corporate bonds (both investment grade and non-investment grade) but may also be invested, from time to time, in other higher yielding securities where the Manager believes performance could be enhanced and/or portfolio risk reduced without prejudicing the target yield. The Higher Yield Portfolio is diversified by stock, sector and credit risk. A majority of the fixed interest securities within the Higher Yield Portfolio is expected to be Sterling denominated but securities with denominations other than Sterling will also be held to provide portfolio diversification, with overseas currency exposure being hedged.
