FE Crown Rating ( Underlying )

Fund Objective ( Underlying )

The fund invests globally in companies considered to be the ‘building blocks’ of the world’s economy, with the aim of generating long term capital growth. Central to the stock selection process is identifying those companies that are positioned to benefit from the most compelling global economic trends, driven predominantly by emerging markets. The approach is summed up by the fund’s ‘curve of economic development’ concept, and positioning of the fund on the curve is based on where the manager thinks valuation levels are the most attractive.
