The fund aims to maximise long-term total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) through a concentrated portfolio of between 25 and 35 holdings from across Europe, including the UK. Stocks are selected based on their individual merits, with a focus on quality businesses where an element of change is helping to drive their value. Crucially, the fund manager will purchase shares in a company when short-term issues have provided a clear valuation opportunity, with a view to holding those shares over the long term.
