Fact sheet

Following FCA approval, from 27 November 2020, the role of Authorised Corporate Director (ACD) function has changed from Link Fund Solutions Limited to Premier Portfolio Managers Limited. At the same time, the fund was renamed, with the LF Miton prefix changing to Premier Miton. This reflects the change of ACD and the name of the new company, Premier Miton Investors, formed following the merger of Premier Asset Management Group plc and Miton Group plc in November 2019.

  • Fund overview
  • Investment approach
  • Risks

The objective of the fund is to achieve capital growth over the long term from a global, diversified portfolio of investments across a range of asset classes. The asset classes chosen by the fund managers to meet the objective will include fixed income (including bonds issued by governments and companies), equities (company shares), property (including Real Estate Investment Trusts) commodities, cash and cash like investments.

Key Points:

  • Genuinely active investors – the fund managers have a pragmatic approach to investing and are not forced to own something just because it’s in an index, allowing them to focus on producing the outcome investors want.
  • Directly invested in company shares and bonds rather than other investment funds (such as OEICs and Unit Trusts) which has the benefit of keeping overall charges lower as the fund does not also pay the charges levied by those funds.
  • Experienced investment managers - the team has over 50 years combined investment experience gained at companies including M&G, Newton and Merrill Lynch.
  • Independently rated - the experience of the fund managers and quality of the funds has been recognised by independent industry endorsements.
  • Diversified portfolio, the fund manager will usually maintain a portfolio of at least 100 individual investments.
The material within these webpages is not a recommendation to buy or sell any of the investments referred to herein. Premier Miton does not give financial advice. If you are unsure as to the suitability of the investments mentioned please contact a financial adviser. The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount invested. Please see the Risks section above for a list of all associated risks.

The fund managers will assess the broad economic environment, focusing on areas such as economic growth, inflation expectations and the outlook for interest rates, to determine the attractiveness of the asset classes in which the fund can invest.

They will seek to identify long-term structural changes or themes that are taking place, for example in economies or society, which will influence the attractiveness of each of the asset classes as well as geographic regions and business sectors. Examples of such themes would be the impact of technological and demographic change. Once these themes have been identified they will typically be reflected in the fund for several years.

Each economic or thematic opportunity will be implemented in the fund through a diversified range of individual investments assessed through a detailed research process.

The managers will aim to achieve the investment objective without taking undue risk. The analysis of the economic environment, themes and individual investments helps to mitigate risk and careful consideration is given to portfolio construction to blend the investments together with the aim of spreading risk across the range of holdings.

  • The value of investments may fluctuate which will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount invested.
  • For funds investing globally, currency exchange rate fluctuations may have a positive or negative impact on the value of your investment.
  • Changes in interest rates will affect the value of, and the interest earned from bonds held by the Fund. When interest rates rise, the capital value of the Fund is likely to fall and vice versa.
  • The Fund does not use derivatives extensively, although it may use them in an attempt to reduce risk, reduce costs and to generate additional income. Investing in derivatives carries the risk of reduced liquidity, substantial loss and increased volatility in adverse market conditions. Derivatives may expose the Fund to credit risks of counterparties, who may not meet payment obligations. The use of derivatives may result in the fund being leveraged (where economic exposure and thus the potential for loss by the fund exceeds the amount it has invested) and in these market conditions the effect of leverage will magnify losses.
