Acumen Capital Protection Portfolio Key Investor Information

This page provides you with key investor information about the Acumen Capital Protection Portfolio. It is not marketing material. The information is required by law to help you understand the nature and the risks of investing in this fund. You are advised to read it so you can make an informed decision about whether to invest.

ACUMEN Capital Protection Portfolio Share Class A GBP (ISIN: IE00BD71CN33)

The ACUMEN Capital Protection Portfolio (the “Fund”) is a sub-fund of FundLogic Alternatives Plc (the “Company”).


• The Fund’s investment objective is to provide shareholders with long term capital growth from a multi-asset portfolio (the “Investment Portfolio”) and to achieve a common protection level (expressed as a percentage of the net asset value (“NAV”) per share). The “Common Protection Level” is the ratio of 90% of the highest NAV per share ever achieved by the GBP A Share Class (“Minimum NAV”), and the current NAV per share of the GBP A Share Class

• The Fund’s strategy consists of investments in fixed income instruments, equities, foreign exchange and alternative assets including ETFs and UCITS eligible indices, which allocation is determined from time to time by Tavistock Wealth Limited (the “Sub-Investment Manager”) and exposure to cash. The allocation to cash is variable and aims to control risk (measured by volatility) by increasing the allocation when necessary, with the aim of maintaining the annualised volatility of the Fund’s NAV at or below 7%. The Fund will also achieve protection using derivatives, which will be provided by Morgan Stanley & Co. International Plc. (“Morgan Stanley”)

• In addition, Morgan Stanley (“Guarantor”) has issued a guarantee (“Guarantee”) to the Fund to ensure investors achieve the Common Protection Level upon redemption

• Costs incurred in implementing the Fund’s Investment Policy will have a negative effect on the Fund’s performance

• Any income from the Fund will be re-invested and the Fund will not pay any dividends

• The value of the Fund is calculated and published daily except as set out in the Company’s prospectus and the Fund’s supplement (collectively “Prospectus”). Investors can buy and/or sell back their shares daily

• The investment manager of the Fund is FundLogic SAS, a management company authorised by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers, and it has appointed Tavistock Wealth Limited as Sub-Investment Manager of the Fund



• The Fund is assigned to this category because its share price is expected to fluctuate moderately due to the investment policy applied

You should be aware that:

• Past performance and/or simulated data may not be a reliable indicator of the Fund’s future performance

• The lowest risk category does not indicate a risk free investment

• The risk and reward category shown above is not guaranteed and may move down or up over time

• There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective and you may lose money. The Fund’s performance will be affected by market movements

Other risks that you should be aware of, which may not be captured by the Risk and Reward Indicator, include:

• The Fund performance is dependent on other factors in addition to the Investment Portfolio’s performance. Thus shareholders will not be able to derive the net asset value of the Fund directly from changes in the level of the Investment Portfolio alone

• The Sub-Investment Manager manages the Investment Portfolio and so the success of the Fund depends, among other things, upon the expertise of the Sub-Investment Manager

• Given the Fund’s strategy, there is a risk that there is low exposure to the Investment Portfolio for certain periods. In this case, shareholders will be exposed to overnight interest rates which might be negative

• The use of derivatives involves a higher level of complexity than a direct investment and may multiply the gains or losses of the Fund on a given investment or its investments generally. Additionally, the valuation of certain derivatives may depend on multiple market parameters

• The Fund’s performance may be influenced by movements in currency exchange rates because the Fund may have exposure to assets that are not denominated in the base currency of the Fund

• The Fund will be exposed to the credit risk of the parties with which it transacts. It also faces the risk that the contracts it enters into will not be settled in the intended manner

• The Fund is subject to a number of risks relating to the insolvency of the Fund’s Depositary and Sub-Custodian including the loss of the Fund’s assets held in custody due to the lack of segregation or client money protection, or due to the incorrect operation of the custody accounts

• The Fund does not offer full capital protection. As the Fund purchases an asset that provides protection, in a flat or rising market the performance of the Fund will be lower than the performance of an unprotected fund following a similar investment strategy that does not purchase protection. This is because, in a flat or rising market, the cost of the protection will have a negative effect on the Fund’s performance

• The Investment Manager seeks to hedge the impact of currency fluctuations on the Minimum NAV, however investors should note that such hedging may not always be successful in protecting the Minimum NAV against exchange rate risks

• Additionally, as Morgan Stanley and/or its affiliates act as counterparty and guarantor to the Fund, if Morgan Stanley and/or its affiliates became insolvent, the capital protection obtained through the financial derivative instruments might fail

• Investment in the Fund may be affected by operational risks at the Investment Manager, the Sub-Investment Manager, the Administrator and other service providers to the Fund

• In certain instances, the directors of the Fund may temporarily suspend trading in Fund shares and this may affect your ability to buy or sell shares

• The Fund may use certain investment instruments that could result in the Fund losing money in a rising market

• The entity with whom the Fund enters into derivative contracts may become unable to meet its financial obligations under the contract

• Such currency fluctuations if unhedged may impact the ability of the Investment Manager to achieve the Fund’s objective (as described above) and may result in investor proceeds being lower than 90% of the Minimum NAV of the respective share class

• In the event that the Sub-Investment Management Agreement is terminated, the Fund may be liquidated
