Fund Objective

The Man NewSmith UK Equity Alternative Fund targets absolute returns from long/ short investment in UK equities. The aim is to generate alpha through fundamental research and stock selection. The Fund invests mainly in liquid, large-cap and midcap stocks in the FTSE 350 Index, with selective long/short investments in smallcaps. The team aims to take positions in companies that are mis-priced in absolute or relative terms, using a fl exible and opportunistic investment style appropriate to the market cycle. The Fund operates within a typical net exposure range of -10% ~ +30%, with the upper end of the range being a hard limit. The limits illustrate the Investment Manager’s current intentions, and are subject to change without notice..
