Asset class
Investment objective
The Fund’s investment objectives are to achieve long-term growth of capital and income. The Fund invests primarily in common stocks, most of which have a history of paying dividends. The Fund’s equity investments are generally limited to securities of companies that are included on its eligible list. In addition, the Fund may invest up to 5% of its assets, at the time of purchase, in securities of companies that are not included on its eligible list. Securities are added to, or deleted from, the eligible list based upon a number of factors, such as the Fund’s investment objectives and policies, whether a company is deemed to be an established company of sufficient quality and a company’s dividend payment prospects. Although the Fund focuses on investments in medium to larger capitalization companies, the Fund’s investments are not limited to a particular capitalization size. In the selection of common stocks and other securities for investment, potential for capital appreciation and future dividends are given more weight than current yield. The Fund may invest up to 15% of its assets, at the time of purchase, in securities of issuers domiciled outside the United States. On an ancillary basis, as described in the prospectus, the Fund may invest into straight debt securities.

Risk profile

Synthetic Risk & Reward Indicator (SRRI)

Lower riskHigher risk
Potentially lower rewardsPotentially higher rewards
The Synthetic Risk & Reward Indicator (SRRI) is a measure of the overall risk and reward profile of a fund. Funds are categorised on a scale from 1 to 7 where 1 is the lowest risk and 7 is the highest. Typically, the SRRI is derived from the volatility of the past returns over a five year period. Historical data, such as is used in calculating this indicator, may not be a reliable indication for the future. The risk category shown is not guaranteed and may shift over time. The lowest category does not mean risk free. The SRRI is featured in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID).
