Ravenscroft Investment Management Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ravenscroft Limited and our core offering is the Huntress Fund range, which has been designed to cater for a broad spectrum of investment requirements and risk appetites. Ravenscroft Huntress Global Balanced, Global Income and Global Growth are daily dealing fund-of-funds, and the Huntress Global Blue Chip is a focused portfolio of direct stocks. All of our funds invest globally and are aligned with investment themes that we believe will benefit from long-term trends in demography, globalisation and technological developments. All of our funds are actively managed, have daily liquidity and are not constrained by stock market indices or benchmarks.
As we look to build our presence in the UK, Ravenscroft Investment Management Limited has - in conjunction with Investment Fund Services Limited - launched its range of funds into the UK through an authorised OEIC. The four sub-funds of the IFSL Ravenscroft Huntress OEIC are:
IFSL Ravenscroft Huntress Diverse Income Fund The objective of the Fund is to provide investors with an income whilst also providing some potential for capital growth over the medium term (3-5 years). The Fund will invest predominantly into funds investing in fixed interest securities, with the option to invest up to 35% into global equity funds with exposure to our global themes. It is intended that the Fund will be managed so that it is eligible for quotation within the Investment Association's Mixed Investment 0-35% Shares sector. Income and Accumulation share classes will be made available.
IFSL Ravenscroft Huntress Balanced Fund The objective of the Fund is to generate capital growth over the medium to long term (3-10 years). The fund is a balanced investment solution seeking exposure to our global themes through equity and fixed-income funds. The Fund has a flexible mandate which allows up to 60% of the portfolio to be exposed to equities and at least 30% of the portfolio to be exposed to fixed income and/or cash investments. It is intended that the Fund will be managed so that it is eligible for quotation within the Investment Association's Mixed Investment 20-60% Shares sector.
IFSL Ravenscroft Huntress Growth Fund The objective of the Fund is to generate capital growth over the long term (over 5 years). The Fund will seek exposure to our global themes through a mix of suitable global equity and thematically aligned sector specific funds. The fund will also have exposure to fixed interest investments so that it is eligible for quotation within the Investment Association's Mixed Investment 40-85% Shares sector.
IFSL Ravenscroft Huntress Global Blue Chip Equity Fund The objective of the Fund is to generate capital growth over the long term (over 5 years). The Fund will invest in the equity of approximately 25-30 multinational businesses; each of which is aligned with one or more of our investment themes. Our selection process identifies financially strong and prudent businesses, with global revenue streams and brands that you can trust and whose management teams are focused on increasing shareholder value. We intend to invest into these companies for the long-term, allowing for the combination of our themes and the quality of the companies to generate returns for our investors. It is intended that the Fund will be managed so that it is eligible for quotation within the Investment Association's Global sector.
