The fund aims to provide a long-term positive return, whether equity markets go up or down, by investing primarily in European (including the UK) company shares. Derivatives will be used to help the fund achieve its objective. The fund aims to typically deliver absolute (more than zero) returns in each year, although an absolute return performance is not guaranteed. Over the short term it may experience periods of negative returns so the fund may not achieve this objective.
