The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve capital growth. The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily in global equities (meaning the shares of companies established or listed anywhere in the world). The equities selected will be those that are believed, by the investment manager, to offer the prospect of superior long term growth. The Fund seeks to outperform the market over the medium term. The Fund may also be invested in transferable securities, units in collective investment schemes, (which from time to time may include those managed by the ACD or an Associate of the ACD), money-market instruments, cash and near cash and deposits. The fund may use derivatives and forward transactions for efficient portfolio management purposes, including protecting the Fund against the exposure to currency fluctuations.
