The investment objective of the Fund is to seek to achieve significant outperformance of the MSCI All Country World Index over the long term. The Portfolio will implement its strategy by investing all or part of the net proceeds of Shares in (i) transferable securities (ii) exchange traded and OTC financial derivative instruments, (iii) money market instruments, (iv) other collective investment schemes and (v) deposits, cash or cash equivalents. The Investment Manager will seek to achieve the objective by using a bottom-up stock picking approach that is not constrained by sector or individual stock weightings represented by the MSCI All Country World Index.
