Objective

The fund aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing at least 2/3 of its total assets in equity securities of businesses engaged in precious metals activities. It can invest up to 1/3 of its total assets in other transferable securities, units of UCITS/UCIs and liquidities. The weightings within the portfolio may vary and, from time to time, a substantial portion of assets may be invested in any one country and/or in securities providing exposure to a specific category of precious metals. Derivative techniques and instruments may be used for efficient portfolio management and hedging purposes on an ancillary basis.
