Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in equities of small and mid-sized US companies. The fund may invest at least two-thirds of its assets in the equities of small and mid-sized US companies. These are companies which, at the time of purchase, are considered to be in the bottom 40% by market capitalisation of the US equities market. The fund invests in a broad range of small and mid-sized US companies. The investment approach focuses on three types of US companies; companies that the manager believes demonstrate strong growth trends and improving levels of cash; companies which the manager believes generate dependable earnings and revenues; and companies that the manager believes are undergoing positive change that is not being recognised by the market. By doing so, the manager believes that we can reduce overall risk and improve returns for our investors over the medium to long term. The fund may use derivatives with aim of reducing risk or managing the fund more efficiently. The fund may also hold cash.
