Objective

The main aim of the fund is to achieve capital growth.The fund invests primarily in the equities of smaller companies domiciled in Continental Europe or with significant Continental European operations. If the company considers it desirable it may further invest in other securities (including fixed interest securities, other equities and money market securities). As it invests in smaller companies, the Fund will mainly choose shares from companies that are smaller in size than the top 225 companies in the FTSE World Europe (ex UK) Index.
