The unit trust portfolio is suitable for investors who require specific exposure to small- and mid-cap sector shares as part of their overall investment strategy, with maximum capital appreciation as their primary goal over the long term. Investors should have a higher tolerance for short-term market volatility in order to achieve long-term objectives. Due to its specialist nature, the portfolio will typically display higher volatility than a general equity unit trust portfolio.
