Fund objective
The fund aims to provide long term growth by investing in US or Canadian equities (including a limited exposure to Latin and Central America). The fund typically holds a concentrated portfolio of stocks and is actively managed by our investment team, who will select stocks, without reference to index weight or size, to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Due to the unconstrained nature of the fund investors must be willing to accept a relatively high degree of stock specific risk.
