Fund Objective

The fund aims to deliver capital growth over the long term (that is, over five years or more) by investing at least 70% of the fund in sound, well-run companies from anywhere in the world that operate in primary (such as mining) and secondary industries (such as manufacturing), and also in companies that service these industries. The investment process is a blend of macroeconomic and company analysis focused on identifying and exploiting investment themes that are likely to be the key long-term drivers of growth and selecting the stocks best placed to benefit from them. The fund invests across different countries and companies of varying sizes.
