The fund invests in a highly concentrated portfolio of Equities of predominantly European small-, and midcap companies, on the basis of fundamental, bottom-up analysis. The initial focus is on industries that the Fund deems to be predicable. A high or rising return on capital, above average profit margins and significant free cashflows are strong indications of better-than-average companies that have the Fund's interest. The Fund invests only in shares of companies, that are perceived to provide a return covering the investment risk over a 3 to 5 year period.
