The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the Russell/Nomura Small Cap Index by 2.5% per annum, before the deduction of charges, over any 5 year period.
The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in a concentrated portfolio of shares (equities) and equity-related securities of smaller companies, in any industry, in Japan.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including companies of any size, 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 Russell/Nomura Small Cap Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund’s performance target and the level above which performance fees may be charged (if applicable). The investment manager has discretion to choose investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index, but at times the Fund may hold investments similar to the index.
