Fund objective
The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets. The Fund invests at least 70% of its total assets in the shares of companies domiciled in European Union (EU) Member States participating in the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union (EMU). The Fund may also gain exposure to investments in those EU Member States that, in the Portfolio Manager’s opinion, are likely to join the EMU in the foreseeable future and in companies based elsewhere, the main business of which is in EMU-participating countries.
