Fund Profile

Category: SICAV

Objective The fund’s objective is capital appreciation, measured in Euros. Investment Policy The fund invests primarily (at least 70%) in European equity securities. Some of the countries in Europe, primarily those in Eastern Europe, are currently considered emerging market economies. The fund may use derivatives for hedging and/or investment purposes but will not primarily use derivatives to achieve the fund's investment objective. Distributions Income will not be distributed to shareholders but reflected in the assets of the fund. Redeeming Shares You may sell your shares on each business day when banks in Luxembourg are open for normal business and the New York Stock Exchange is open for trading. Terms to Understand Equity securities represent an ownership interest, or the right to acquire an ownership interest, in a company or other issuer. Derivatives are financial contracts whose value is based on the value of one or more underlying indicators or the difference between underlying indicators.
