The Fund primarily invests in the shares of gold mining, precious metal-related, and resources-based companies quoted on recognised and eligible markets. It aims to deliver capital growth. The Fund is managed by AGF (a minority shareholder of Smith & Williamson) in Toronto by Stephen Bonnyman who has over 20 years of investment experience covering the global materials industry.
The Fund aims to achieve income return and capital appreciation. The Fund will endeavor to achieve its objective by investing the majority of its Net Asset Value in equity and equity-related securities and debt securities.
The Fund looks to achieve long-term steady capital growth through primarily investing at least 50% of assets in zero dividend preference shares and synthetic zeros. It can also invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, deposits, collective investment schemes and warrants when appropriate. The Fund has been managed by James Burns since 2001 and the assistant fund manager has been Genevra Banszky von Ambroz since January 2014.
The name of the Fund changed from Smith & Williamson MM Cautious Growth Fund to Smith & Williamson Defensive Growth Fund on 6 October 2016, to more accurately reflect the performance objective of its IA sector.
The Fund aims to achieve a return by combining both long-term capital growth with the generation of some income. The Fund will invest primarily in regulated collective investment schemes globally, but will maintain a UK bias. Whilst investing primarily in open-ended funds, there is also the flexibility to utilise both open and closed ended funds within a multi asset capability, thereby increasing potential for total return. The Fund has been run by James Burns since 2007 who is assisted by Genevra Banszky von Ambroz.
This UK-domiciled Fund has been actively managed by James Burns since 2005 and assistant fund manager Genevra Banszky von Ambroz since January 2014.

James has designed the fund to replicate a growth-orientated private client portfolio in a single holding suitable for those wishing to invest for capital growth.
