Objective

To maximise long-term capital growth by investing primarily in an aggressively managed portfolio of small capitalisation European companies. At least 67% of the Sub-Fund's assets will be invested in equity securities of small capitalisation companies that are domiciled in, or carrying out the main part of their economic activity in, a European country. Market capitalisation is the total value of a company's shares and may fluctuate materially over time. Small capitalisation companies are those whose market capitalisation is within the range of the market capitalisation of companies in the Benchmark for the Sub-Fund at the time of purchase.
