Fund objective
The fund's investment objective is to seek capital appreciation, measured in euros. Looks for quality continental European companies which we believe have enduring competitive advantages and strong management team. Flexibility to invest across market capitalizations and styles – country and sector weightings determined by research and security selection. Focuses on downside risk by assessing the quality of the business model and through rigorous valuation analysis. Seeks companies with sustainable, above average growth, reasonable valuations, and strives to invest rather than speculate.
