Fund objective
To achieve long term capital growth by investing predominantly in a portfolio of companies which are part of the MSCI World Index or the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (the “Indices”). The Fund seeks to deliver performance, before deduction of management fees, in excess of a blended return of the Indices, with a similar level of overall volatility, over the long term. Of the two Indices, the fund will invest almost exclusively in companies that are part of the MSCI World Index. The Fund may only take limited positions away from these Indices. This means there are limitations on the extent to which the Fund’s investment in various sectors* may differ to the Index. These limited positions can be more than is held in the Index (overweight) or less than is held in the Index (underweight). * A sector is a business area, industry or economy which shares the same characteristics. Company shares are typically grouped into different sectors depending on the company’s business, for example travel and leisure or telecommunications.
