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 Investment Manager may consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in its fundamental investment analysis alongside other factors. The fund’s benchmark, MSCI Europe Index (EUR), is indicated for performance comparison only. Although the fund’s investments will generally be represented in the benchmark, components are likely to be weighted differently from the benchmark and the fund is likely to invest outside of the benchmark to take advantage of attractive investment opportunities. The fund is actively managed within its objectives and the investment strategy will not restrict the extent to which portfolio holdings may deviate from the benchmark. It is expected that the fund's deviation from the benchmark will be significant. 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.
