HSBC FTSE All Share Index C Acc

Willis Owen Research Commentary

This fund offers a simple, low cost and flexible way of investing in the UK stock market by tracking the FTSE All-Share Index. The ongoing charge is just 0.07%. The managers use a technique called ‘partial replication’. The fund holds all the constituents of the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 (excluding Investment Trusts) but only a representative sample of smaller companies. The aim is to replicate the general makeup of the FTSE Small Cap index and hence give similar performance characteristics whilst avoiding the cost of holding all members of this broad universe. The fund invests in the shares, however the manager does use futures (a type of derivative) to manage cash flows.
