Fund Objective

The objective of the Sub-fund is to produce capital growth over the long term. The Sub-fund will invest primarily in a combination of equities, fixed interest securities, and collective investment schemes, cash near cash and deposits. The Sub-fund may invest in derivatives and currency forwards for investment purposes as well as for efficient portfolio management. The Sub-fund is actively managed and the investment manager has the discretion to invest in any combination of these asset classes and also to diversify the portfolio by investing in any country and in any economic sector. The equities in which the Sub-fund invests may be from companies of any size and from anywhere in the world and the fixed interest securities in which the Sub-fund invests may be issued by sovereign, supranational, public sector or corporate issuers in any country. The collective investment schemes in which the Sub-fund invests (which may include those managed or operated by the ACD) may be used to obtain indirect exposure to the asset classes described above or to obtain further diversification, at the investment manager’s discretion. The Sub-fund may also invest in other transferable securities and warrants
