Fund Objective

The Fund aims for capital growth by investing in any European stockmarket except the UK. Although the bulk of investment will take place in the major markets, the Investment Adviser believes that the smaller markets also offer interesting opportunities from time to time and should be represented in the Fund. The Fund mainly invests in equities, but there may be periods when European fixed interest securities are an attractive investment for part of the portfolio.
