The fund is invested principally in the shares of European (including UK) companies that are deemed to be undervalued, with the aim of maximising long-term total return. It is an actively managed fund where the selection of stocks is driven by in-depth analysis of individual companies. The fund manager takes a long-term view and seeks to identify companies that are out of favour and whose potential value, in his view, is yet to be reflected in the share price.
