Investment Trust specialising in disruptive early-stage and early-growth companies, alongside some 'high conviction' mid and large-capitalisation ideas. It purchases stakes in companies with first-rate intellectual property, helping them to meet their growth potential through the provision of long-term capital. Managed by fund manager Neil Woodford, the fund believes it can offer lower correlation in risk to equity markets in general and the economy, which may offer diversification benefits, although outcomes can be more binary, with extremely attractive rewards for success but with failure entailing the risk of capital loss.
