Fund objective
The Fund aims for maximum capital growth through investment in a broad spread of European securities. The Manager will invest in European companies which offer good prospects for capital growth. Whilst the Fund will invest principally in companies incorporated in Europe, the Manager may also invest in companies which derive an important proportion of their earnings from European trade or operations. It is intended that the Fund will have minimal exposure to the UK. The manager will also take opportunities as they arise to invest in European emerging markets.
