Fund objective
The sub-fund seeks long term capital growth by investing primarily in a well diversified portfolio of investments in equity and equity equivalent securities of companies which have their registered office in, and with an official listing on a major stock exchange or other Regulated Market of any European Monetary Union (EMU) member country. Initially this will be the 12 member countries but if others join the EMU in the future then investments in these countries may also be considered. Whilst there are no capitalisation restrictions, it is anticipated that the sub-fund will seek to invest primarily in larger, established companies. The sub-fund may also invest in financial derivative instruments such as futures, options and swaps (including, but not limited to, credit default swaps) and in other currency and equity derivatives. The sub-fund intends to use such financial derivative instruments, inter alia, for the purposes of managing market exposure and currency positioning but also to enhance return when the Investment Adviser believes the investment in financial derivative instruments will assist the sub-fund in achieving its investment objectives.
