Our approach

The AIMS Target Return Fund is a multi-strategy portfolio targeting an annual return of cash plus five per cent per annum above the Central Bank base rate over a rolling three-year period (gross of fees), with less than half the volatility of global equities.

It seeks to deliver returns that are uncorrelated to other asset classes, acting as a diversifier within investors’ broader portfolios and providing some protection against the impact of equity market volatility.

Key risks

For further information on the risks and risk profiles of our funds, please refer to the relevant KIID and Prospectus.

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Derivatives risk

The fund uses derivatives; these can be complex and highly volatile. Derivatives may not perform as expected, which means the fund may suffer significant losses.

Illiquid securities risk

Certain assets held in the fund could, by nature, be hard to value or to sell at a desired time or at a price considered to be fair (especially in large quantities), and as a result their prices could be very volatile.
