The Chelsea investment philosophy & process

What does this fund do?

Quite simply, the aggressive fund aims to grow your money over the long term. We will invest heavily in stock markets around the world, which means the fund may be more volatile than the other VT Chelsea Managed Funds.

Long-term, sustainable growth is not just about making the right investments; it’s about being invested (or not) at the right time. We will not be afraid to tilt this fund towards our preferred sectors or regions to seek the highest potential gains, and we won’t hesitate to take on a bit of extra risk, but it must be justified by return potential.

What do we invest in?

We are happy to include more niche funds in this portfolio when they offer an opportunity to enhance returns. This means we are more likely to hold single country funds, which could include places such as India or other emerging markets, as well as highly specialised funds in sectors such as technology, biotechnology or insurance.

We may also avoid countries where we don’t currently see strong growth prospects, which means the fund may be quite different from the global stock market. The fund may also have a significant weighting to small- and mid-cap equities. Up to 100% of the fund may be invested in UK and overseas equities, although other assets could include bonds, property, gold and targeted absolute return strategies.
