Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth and income. At least 70% of the fund will be invested in shares of medium-sized North American companies. The fund has no bias to any particular industry. The companies will be in the bottom 40% by size of the North American market at the time of purchase. The fund invests in a broad range of medium sized North American companies on the belief that they will offer better growth prospects than their larger peers over the medium to long term. Smaller companies are typically at the early stages of their expansion and under-researched compared to their larger peers. Our investment approach focuses on three types of companies: companies that demonstrate strong growth trends and improving levels of cash; companies which generate dependable earnings and revenues; and companies which are companies that are undergoing positive change that is not being recognised by the market. By doing so, we believe that we can reduce overall risk and improve returns for our investors over the medium to long term. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to reduce risk or manage the fund more effectively.
