Key data





Why invest in the fund?




Company focus


Unconstrained, rigorous in-house company research is based on our consistently applied philosophy and process. We only select those businesses which meet our stringent investment criteria.




Team approach


We invest as a team. Our long tenured, experienced investment team challenges and debates all proposals.




Long-term investment horizon


Our buy-and-hold approach is focused on sustainable growth. We invest for the long term in order to exploit the power of compound growth.

The value of investments can fall. Investors may not get back the amount invested.

Objective: To achieve long-term capital appreciation through investing primarily in a portfolio of equity and equity related securities of  companies located throughout Europe.

Benchmark: The Fund will measure its performance against the MSCI Europe NR Index (the “Benchmark”). 

The Fund is actively managed, which means the Investment Manager has absolute discretion to invest outside the Benchmark subject to the investment objective and policies disclosed in the Prospectus. While the Fund’s holdings may include constituents of the Benchmark, the selection of investments and their weightings in the portfolio are not influenced by the Benchmark. The investment strategy does not restrict the extent to which the Investment Manager may deviate from the Benchmark.
