Fund Objective

The fund aims to provide capital growth. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in shares of large and medium-sized European companies, excluding the UK. The fund has no bias to any particular industry. The fund follows an investment approach based around the business cycle, where the managers attempt to identify turning points in the cycle and then focus on the types of companies they believe will benefit from it. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to reduce risk or manage the fund more efficiently.
