Specialist funds

Our multi-manager specialist funds are aimed at investors and advisers who prefer to build their own portfolios, or who are interested in investing in a particular region or asset class.

The Fund does not have a benchmark. Investors can assess the performance of the Fund can be assessed against the prevailing Bank of England base rate (Base Rate) over the medium to long term (at least 5 years). The Base Rate has been chosen because funds that invest in “alternative” assets classes often use a cash interest rate for performance assessment purposes. Investors should note that it is not an exact like-for-like comparison because the Fund investments are subject to a level of risk or volatility. Investors can find details of the Bank of England’s base rate at https://www.bankofengland.co.uk

The Fund has a reference benchmark for performance comparison purposes - the Investment Association’s 'Sterling Strategic Bond' sector.  This 'sector' contains funds with similar characteristics; they invest at least 80% of the fund's assets in Sterling denominated fixed income securities. The funds in the sector will not have exactly the same characteristics (such as their objectives, level of risk and types of risk) and are therefore not an exact like-for-like comparison. Investors can find details of the sector's performance at: http://www.morningstar.co.uk


MM UK Equity Fund

Synthetic Risk and Reward Indicator score (SRRI) 5

This fund aims:
To give investors exposure to UK equities to help diversify an existing portfolio. It aims to achieve medium to long-term capital growth whilst investing mainly in shares in UK companies.

See our glossary to learn more about the Synthetic Risk and Reward Indicator (SRRI). The Investment Association is a trade body that represent UK investment managers and they group funds with broadly similar characteristics into sectors. 

Please remember that the value of your investment and any income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market movements and increases or decreases in currency exchange rates. It is not guaranteed and you could get back less than you invest. In addition, the income paid or reinvested is not fixed and can go down as well as up. Some of the Architas Diversified Real Asset Fund’s portfolio is invested in alternative assets which are different to the more traditional asset classes such as equities and bonds. During difficult market conditions these may be hard to sell at a fair price, referred to as being illiquid, which may in turn cause prices of these assets to go up and down more sharply than usual.

Each of these funds can invest entirely in units of collective investment schemes. For further information on any of the Architas funds, please refer to the Key Investor Information document, prospectus (which is available upon request) or seek advice from your financial adviser.
