Fund objective
The Fund aims to achieve a positive absolute return through a combination of capital growth and income on your investment regardless of market conditions. The Fund seeks to gain at least 70% of any investment exposure to shares of companies incorporated or listed in the United States, Canada and Latin America. This is achieved by investing at least 70% of its assets in shares, other equity-related securities and, when determined appropriate fixed income (FI) securities (such as bonds), money market instruments (MMIs), deposits and cash. The equity-related securities include financial derivative instruments (FDIs). At any one time, a substantial, or even all of the Fund’s assets may be held as cash to provide cover for the exposure created by the use of FDIs or to assist in achieving its investment objective.
