About GPS Funds

Davy GPS Funds provide three UCITS funds of funds (funds which invest in other funds), allowing investors to choose a fund to suit their investment objectives.

  • The Davy Cautious Growth Fund: for investors who prioritise reduced risk. This fund follows a strategy which aims for lower volatility but which could produce lower returns over the medium to long term.
  • The Davy Balanced Growth Fund: for investors who have a moderate approach to risk, with a balance between lower volatility and higher volatility assets.
  • The Davy Long Term Growth Fund: for investors who are willing to accept greater volatility in pursuit of higher returns to achieve longer term investment objectives.

Some risks of investing in Davy GPS Funds

As with all investments, there are risks to investing in Davy GPS Funds. They include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Investors cannot control the investments that are made within the Fund. This discretion is held by the Investment Manager (J&E Davy) appointed by the investment Fund provider.
  • Although a Fund may be denominated in a particular currency, underlying investments may be held in other currencies and thus the Fund may be subject to currency moves.
  • Other risks apply. Please see the Prospectus, Supplements, Key Investor Information Documents and the Information Memorandum for full details on charges, expenses and risks.
