Fund objective
The fund's investment objective is to seek capital appreciation, measured in US dollars. Concentrated portfolio that generally invests in 50 or fewer global companies. Selects equity securities perceived by MFS as having above average growth and undervalued compared with their perceived worth. Through fundamental analysis we identify enduring businesses, focusing on operational risks and the long-term potential for change. We consider whether the valuation reflects the long-term growth and returns of the company, and to what extent it adequately incorporates risk.
