The Fund aims to provide a return, from a combination of capital growth and income over the long term (5 years or more).
The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in a concentrated portfolio of shares (equities) and equity-related securities of companies, of any size, in any industry, in Continental Europe. Companies will have their registered office in or do most of their business (directly or through subsidiaries) in this region.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including cash and money market instruments.
The investment manager may use derivatives (complex financial instruments) to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the MSCI Europe (ex UK) Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this can provide a useful comparator for assessing the Fund’s performance. The investment manager has discretion to choose investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index. Depending on prevailing market conditions the Fund’s portfolio may shift between ‘high conviction’ (whereby the manager will take significant risk relative to the index) and a more cautious stance. This means the performance of the Fund may at times differ significantly from the index, while at other times it may be more closely aligned.
