Objective

The Fund seeks to achieve a positive absolute return for investors regardless of market movements. The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective through an investment of at least 70% of its total assets in equities and equity-related securities (including derivatives) of companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in Europe and, when determined appropriate, cash and near-cash instruments. The Fund will be highly diversified across the universe of European equities, whilst seeking to minimise net exposure to underlying European equity markets.
