Fund Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth by investing globally. The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing across a range of asset classes such as equities and equity related securities, fixed income, currencies, deposits, cash and money market instruments. Exposure may be gained indirectly to alternative investments. While the Fund will aim to diversify its investments, allocation to certain asset classes, countries, including developed and emerging markets, or sectors may be more than 30% of its total assets depending on the Investment Manager’s assessment at different times. In order to implement the investment policy the Fund may gain exposure directly and/or indirectly through transferable securities, or collective investment schemes. It may also use derivatives including futures, options, swaps, warrants and forward contracts for efficient portfolio management and for investment purposes.
