  • City Financial UK Equity Fund B Acc (CTUEA)

Old Investment Objective

City Financial UK Equity Fund aims to achieve a positive absolute return for investors through investment in UK equities. The Sub-Fund is managed against a cash Benchmark rather than any UK equity index, reflecting the aim to deliver a positive return in all stock market conditions. The Manager seeks to invest in company shares that, after analysis, are deemed to be mispriced by the stock market. This creates opportunities to buy (long) underpriced stocks and to sell (short) overpriced stocks. The Manager looks for a catalyst that will see the mispricing being corrected. The Manager also aims to ascertain over what time-period the correction will take place. This will result in positions being held for various time horizons. The Manager believes that this higher turnover allows for better risk adjusted returns for the Sub-Fund.
