The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the MSCI All Countries World 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 companies, of any size, in any industry, in any country.
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 All Countries World Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund's performance target. 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.
The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
Potential investors must read the prospectus, and where relevant, the key investor information document before investing.

ABOUT THIS FUND
A global select fund seeking to grow capital by investing with conviction in companies worldwide where the portfolio managers believe the market underestimates free cash flow growth. The Fund considers both growth and value criteria as it seeks to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns over the long term, regardless of prevailing market conditions.
Flexible Global All-Cap Equities
The portfolio managers have the flexibility to invest in 40 to 65 companies across the globe, market cap, and style spectrum where free cash flow growth is believed to be underestimated by the market. The portfolio managers search for growing companies and attractive valuations.
The intersection of independent viewpoints and differentiated perspectives between the portfolio managers and research analysts should lead to greater and more consistent excess returns over time.
Exacting Portfolio Construction
Taking a prudent approach to portfolio construction and risk management, the portfolio managers aim to drive superior risk-adjusted returns over the full market cycle through stock selection in an effort to avoid persistent biases.
