Our approach

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

It seeks to deliver returns less correlated to other asset classes, acting as a diversifier within investors’ broader portfolios through its unconstrained absolute approach.

Potential benefits

Multi-strategy investing draws on economic analysis, investment insight and robust portfolio construction.

Targeted outcome

Investments selected with an emphasis on absolute risk-adjusted returns as opposed to benchmark-relative returns.

Low volatility

Aims for volatility that is less than half that of global equities over any three-year period.


Offers a source of diversified returns in a balanced portfolio.

Inflation and the correlation conundrum

The new macro environment poses significant challenges for investors. Our AIMS Target Return team explain why a less conventional approach can help unlock return opportunities and maintain portfolio resilience.

Key risks

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

Investment and currency 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 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.
