  • What is the Fund’s objective?

    The fund aims to deliver income and capital growth over the long term (over five years or more) by investing in the shares of a wide range of companies from anywhere in the world. The fund manager selects companies that he believes to be leading in their field, or have the potential to be leading in their field, in terms of improving return on capital through positive change, but where the change is not yet reflected in the share price. Portfolio construction is based on in-depth analysis of companies, and is not influenced by views on countries and industries.
