Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in equities of small-sized European companies. The fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in equities of small-sized European companies. These are companies which, at the time of purchase, are considered to be in the bottom 30% by market capitalisation of the European equities market.Smaller companies offer investors exposure to some niche growth areas that, often, cannot be accessed through large companies. They also tend to grow more rapidly than larger firms.Our investment approach centres on stock selection, which means we focus on each company's ability to create value for shareholders, rather than try to predict what will happen in the wider economic environment.The fund may use derivatives with the aim of achieving investment gains, reducing risk or managing the fund more efficiently. The fund may also hold cash.
