Aims to achieve capital growth from North American investments by outperformance of the S&P 500 index. The company will predominantly invest in quoted companies including, when appropriate, exposure to smaller capitalisation companies, and emphasise capital growth rather than income. The company has the ability to use borrowing to gear the portfolio within the range of 5% net cash to 20% geared in normal market conditions.
