Fund Objective

The objective of the Fund is to achieve positive real returns with lower volatility than the World Europe Total Return Index. The Fund will seek to achieve returns that are 2% p.a. in excess of the EU Harmonised Inflation benchmark, though there is no guarantee that it will do so. Investors should note that capital is at risk and, while the fund aims to achieve positive returns each year, there is no guarantee that it will do so over that, or any, time period. The portfolio will consist principally of listed equity securities issued by companies established or operating in Europe and derivative instruments which may give either long or short exposure to listed equity securities. The Investment Manager intends to adopt both long and short strategies in its management of the fund, and to adopt a Business Cycle Approach.
