Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

The Fund seeks positive returns by investing primarily in listed shares and related instruments of issuers in Europe or of issuers who derive a substantial part of their revenues from Europe. The Fund may also invest in other asset classes, other funds and in other regions. The Fund may increase its holdings in cash and other liquid assets in times of market turbulence. The Fund aims to deliver absolute returns in any market conditions on a rolling 12 month time frame. The Fund will pursue a 'long-short strategy' whereby, in addition to buying and holding assets, it may use financial derivative instruments (ie instruments whose prices are dependent on one or more underlying assets, 'FDI') extensively to achieve its investment objectives or to take 'short' positions where the Fund may benefit from a fall in value of the underlying asset. The Fund may actively use FDI to achieve the investment objective, for hedging a given investment or against anticipated movements in a market or other sector or where it is more cost effective than directly holding the underlying asset. The use of FDI may multiply the gains or losses made by the Fund on a given investment or on its investments generally. FDI may allow the Fund to obtain market exposure in excess of the value of the Fund's assets (leverage). The extensive use of FDI, and the fact that FDI may only require a small upfront payment, may mean the Fund is consistently required to hold a substantial portion of its assets in bank deposits and other money market securities. Any income earned on investments will be added to the value of investors' shares and investors can buy and sell their shares on each dealing day of the Fund.
