Investment objective

The objective of the Fund is to attempt to achieve over the long term a total return in excess of that of the MSCI World Small and Mid Cap Index (with net dividends reinvested). The Fund seeks to achieve its objective through investment in a concentrated portfolio of equity and equity-related securities of primarily small and medium-sized companies, selected from all the major markets and to a lesser extent from emerging markets worldwide. The approach is focussed on valuations and bottom-up fundamental research of individual companies.
