Investment objective

The Fund will attempt to achieve over the long term a total return in excess of that of the MSCI World Index (with net dividends reinvested) through investment in a concentrated portfolio of equities of predominantly large companies, selected from all the major markets and to a lesser extent from some emerging markets, worldwide. The approach is classic contrarian value, based on bottom-up fundamental research of individual companies. The average market capitalisation of companies represented within the Fund is likely to be more than US$20 billion.
