Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth. The fund will be invested both long and short in companies. The fund may invest in shares, equity related securities, corporate bonds, derivatives and other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Europe is the home market but the Manager will invest globally including emerging markets if the opportunity is deemed to be unique or better. The fund may use leverage and will typically have a net-long bias to equities. The Manager seeks to add value through stock selection with detailed fundamental analysis of individual equities. On the long side the focus is on companies with solid balance sheets, strong cash flows, sustainability and attractive medium-term growth prospects. On the short side the focus is on highly leveraged companies with poor capital structures as well as companies in competitive decline or companies that may be employing aggressive accounting techniques. The Manager seeks to reduce volatility and avoid large drawdowns by using options, single stock shorts and cash. Derivatives may be used to achieve the investment objective and to reduce risk or manage the fund more efficiently. The Manager may use derivatives to reduce the effect of the currency exposure of investments made in currencies different from the fund's base currency EUR. Recommendation: Investors should seek independent advice and satisfy themselves that they have an understanding of the techniques employed by the manager.
