Fund Objective

To provide capital growth by investing in companies’ shares (including derivatives) from around the world. It is the intention of the manager to use derivatives to achieve capital return. A derivative is a general name for financial products whose value depends on the rise and fall of other assets. For this Fund, the derivatives used will principally be equity swaps. These swaps will be used to take both long and synthetic short positions. A synthetic short position provides exposure to companies’ shares without holding the physical shares themselves. When the Fund is short, it profits from a decline in the value of these shares.
