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, or the main business of which is in, Europe. In particular, the Fund will invest in the shares of "special situations" companies, which, in the Portfolio Manager’s opinion, are companies with potential for improvement that the market has failed to appreciate.
