The aim of the Fund is to grow the amount you invested. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in shares of smaller companies in Continental Europe and the UK or companies that have significant operations there. The smaller companies that the Fund invests in will typically be companies that are smaller in size than the top 300 companies in the FTSE World Europe Index. The Fund may also invest in asset classes and instruments different from those stated above. The Fund permanently invests a minimum of 75% of its assets in European Economic Area equities, and is therefore PEA (Plan d'Epargne en Actions) eligible in France.
