The Fund aims to provide a positive (absolute) return, regardless of market conditions, over any 12 month period. A positive return is not guaranteed over this or any other time period, and particularly over the shorter term the Fund may experience periods of negative returns. Consequently your capital is at risk.
The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its total assets in shares or equity-related instruments of companies, which are domiciled in or derive most of the revenue from Europe (including UK). The Fund makes extensive use of derivatives (complex financial instruments) to take both ‘long’ and ‘short’ positions in the companies and may invest in companies of any size, in any industry.
