Low level of downside participation looks to reward patient investors

Fund performance Euro C calculated as total return, based on net asset value, including charges, but excluding initial charge, income reinvested gross of tax, expressed in share class currency.

The Fund will measure its performance against the MSCI World NR Index (the “Benchmark”). The Fund is actively managed, which means the Investment Manager has absolute discretion to invest outside the Benchmark subject to the investment objective and policies disclosed in the Prospectus. While the Fund ‘s holdings may include constituents of the Benchmark, the selection of investments and their weightings in the portfolio are not influenced by the Benchmark. The investment strategy does not restrict the extent to which the Investment Manager may deviate from the Benchmark.
As March’s stock-market slump gave way to a robust second-quarter recovery, Walter Scott’s¹ Long Term Global Equity team held steady with no major changes to its portfolio. The Long Term Global Equity Strategy has come through the crisis in good shape, and the team believes that its long-term focus stands to benefit in the months and years ahead.
