Objective

The objective of the investment policy is to achieve a medium to long-term sustainable capital appreciation. In order to achieve this, the fund invests mainly in equities of domestic and foreign issuers from which an above-average dividend yield is expected. A major criterion when selecting the equities is the level of the dividend yield. However, the dividend yields do not necessarily have to be above the market average. The selection of individual investments is at the discretion of the fund management.
