Fund Objective

The fund aims to achieve an absolute return by investing in equities of European companies. Absolute return means the fund seeks to provide a positive return over rolling 12-month periods in all market conditions, but this cannot be guaranteed and your capital is at risk. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets, long or short, in equities of large and medium sized European companies. Large and medium sized companies are companies which, at the time of purchase, are considered to be in the top 80% by market capitalisation of the European equities market. The fund has no bias to any particular industry. Derivatives may be used to achieve the investment objective and to reduce risk or manage the fund more efficiently. The fund may use leverage and take short positions. The fund may also hold cash.
