Fund Objective

The objective of the fund is to provide long-term total returns with a strong focus on capital preservation by mitigating downside risk through a robust investment process (capital preservation is not however guaranteed). The Manager intends to achieve the objective primarily through the purchase of ordinary shares. There are no restrictions on the economic sectors or geographic areas in which the fund may invest. It is likely that the Fund will provide a variable income yield.
