The IFSL CAF Alternative Strategies Fund, managed by Aberdeen Standard Capital*, invests in alternative investment strategies across multiple asset classes and aims to deliver a positive return in any market environment, after any charges have been taken out of the Fund, over a 12-month rolling period. This is done through both capital growth, which is profit on investments, and income received by the Fund, which is money paid out of investments, such as dividends from shares and interest from bonds.

The Fund's objective is to outperform the UK Consumer Price Index, over any 3 year period, after any charges have been taken out of the Fund. However, there is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objectives over any time period. Capital is at risk.
