Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in equities of European companies. The fund invests in companies whose future prospects, the manager believes, are not reflected in the current share price. We are particularly attracted to companies that are industry leaders; operators in markets with limited competition and high barriers to entry; or firms whose fortunes do not closely track the economic cycle. Our focus is on finding companies with strong underlying businesses, solid market positions, good long-term growth drivers and excellent management teams. 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.
